"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Frankly I'm skeptical.

China Wednesday reported the lowest number of SARS cases since the government admitted covering up the extent of the epidemic, with just 16 new infections outside Beijing among a population of 1.3 billion.

The new figures showed 55 new cases, 39 of which were in the Chinese capital, bringing the cumulative number of cases nationwide to 5,124.

Five deaths were also recorded, all in Beijing, which now has 139 dead among 267 countrywide. The capital has 2,370 confirmed cases.

Seeing the numbers from industrialized and Westernized places (Hong Kong, Taiwan, Canada) make me question these numbers mightily.
