My old laboratory was demolished a few years ago. It was a fine laboratory, which was instrumental in solving outbreaks, notably the outbreak of Echo 11 virus, which killed new-borns. We solved the outbreak by giving immunoglobulin and oral polio vaccine (which has immune parallels with Echo 11) and had only one death. (Other major teaching hospitals did not do this, and their outbreaks ran on, with many deaths.) Alas, I mourn my old laboratory.
Last night the rest of the hospital was burned down, in a suspected arson attack. Fortunately the buildings were disused, but they were listed eighteenth and nineteenth century buildings. I just wonder at the nature of humanity.
