    SINGAPORE, Sept 9 (Reuters) - Singapore's Ministry of Health confirmed on Tuesday that a 27-year-old man had contracted SARS, the world's first case of the deadly virus since the World Health Organisation declared a global outbreak over on July 5.
    "A repeat of the PCR tests was done at the National University Hospital laboratory today and was confirmed positive," the ministry said in a statement, referring to PCR technology that amplifies genetic material in samples from patients to test for SARS.
    SARS originated in southern China and was spread early this year to 30 countries by travellers. It infected nearly 8,500 people globally. More than 800 died, including 33 in Singapore.

    probably from a reuters terminal at work.

    anyhow, how do you get a single isolated case? this fella has not visited china or any sars-infected areas, how does he catch the virus? i'm sure the virus do not manifest itself out of thin air. interesting thought, the labs in NUS are filled with PRC peeps............
