This is a truly sad moment and I am sure the indirect losses will be far greater than the tragic deaths of the surgical team.  As the article points out the intended recipient may well be the next to succumb.  However, the death of the surgical team means less skilled doctors to carry out transplants and increased waiting time for OR resources. 

This is terrible news at time when organ donation awareness is on an upsurge.  I hope it does not discourage those of you that have not yet have signed your organ donor card.
