It has to be a hoax. Doesn’t it?

I am getting tired of posting about SARS, but as I wrote yesterday, Beijing really is SARS City. Four of my colleagues donned surgical masks today. Just now, an email started flying through my office that the Mayor of Beijing has authorized a special 2,500-man “SARS Brigade” to walk through the city streets, with the authority to detain anyone whom they believe has been afflicted and force them to pack off to isolated prevention wards.

Repeat, this is probably a hoax, but that’s what I thought about the Time story earlier this week. Meanwhile, here’s the latest from the Official SARS Photo Album, this one titled SARS Wedding.
