  "abstract": "<p>In 2003&ndash;04, in the wake of the SARS epidemics, there were multiple cases of laboratory acquired infection (LAI) with SARS in just a few months: first in a P3 in Singapore, then in a military P4 in Taipei and last a protracted case in a P3 in Beijing.</p>\n\n<p>This article reviews some of these cases and discusses briefly some of the insights that were gained from these at the time.</p>\n\n<p>Without exaggeration, the Beijing&nbsp;LAI accident seems very much to be a story of towering academic ego, shocking incompetence, obstruction of the truth and lack of accountability. More importantly the unchallenged poor-handling of the investigation by the Chinese authorities may have set a bad precedent.</p>",
