    The patient is a 44-year-old lieutenant-colonel who had been studying severe acute respiratory syndrome at the National Defence University, according to a news release issued by Taiwan's Centre for Disease Control (CDC).

    He might have contracted the virus in the laboratory on Dec 5, during an experiment on Sars, CDC director Su Yi-jen said.

    Dun think we need to fear. Life and death is part of a life cycle. Just live happily meaningfully everyday.

    Go for those company's shares that deal with export (international) not local or regional markets, this will minimise the impact. If nothing goes wrong, next quarter we will see better market performance.
    I might be wrong though.

    sars is only infectious when the person develops a fever and the guy only developed it when he returned to taiwan so i dun think there's any cause for concern yet.
