Singapore - Singapore health officials confirmed on Monday that a local patient has tested positive for severe acute respiratory syndrome, or Sars, in the first new case of the disease in over five months.

The announcement followed a warning from the World Health Organization earlier on Monday that the illness could re-emerge.

Ministry of Health spokesperson Bey Mui Leng told The Associated Press that initial tests of a local man "proved positive for the Sars virus."

"We are repeating the test again tonight," Bey said. The man, an ethnic Chinese Singapore citizen, was tested for Sars after showing signs of the illness when trying to enter Singapore General Hospital, Bey said.

My feeling is that this case will probably be found to be not SARS.
