    <subfield code="a">&lt;p&gt;In 2003&amp;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.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;This article reviews some of these cases and discusses briefly some of the insights that were gained from these at the time.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Without exaggeration, the Beijing&amp;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.&lt;/p&gt;</subfield>
