Taipei Mayor Ma Ying-jeou (R) pastes realgar powder onto a woman's
forehead in Taipei on June 4, 2003, to mark the traditional dargon boat
festival. Realgar is used as an antibacterial agent in traditional
Chinese medicine and belived to expel the evil in the traditional
festival. Taiwan reported no new SARS cases and total infections
dropped by one to 678 due to re-classification of cases, raising hope
it can be taken off the World Health Organisation's travel advisory
list by mid-June. REUTERS/Simon Kwong
