SARS is over in Singapore, or is it? Sibos delegates who have already noted the geographical proximity of the city-state to the unstable Islamic state of Indonesia now have an old worry to contend with as well. Travel restrictions may have been lifted, but US laboratory tests by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention have confirmed that a medical researcher in Singapore has indeed tested positive for SARS. Samples were sent to the United States after World Health Organisation officials questioned whether the researcher, who had worked in laboratories handling the SARAS virus really was suffering from the disease. The authorities in Singapore, one of the three cities most affected by SARS and which has not managed to fill its aeroplanes, hotels and restaurants since, cannot be pleased – since the discovery is bound to fuel speculation that SARS will revive in Asia this Winter.
