PANIC: Deadly Bacteria “Escaped” From the Lab!
From the very well-organized laboratory at the National Center for Primate Research in Tulane in Louisiana, deadly bacteria that has already contracted two monkeys who are threatened with euthanasia and a federal inspector, has escaped.
In Louisiana, there is an investigation on how a dangerous, often deadly bacteria managed to “escape” from a very well-organized scientific laboratory at the National Center for Primate Research in Tulane.
It is the bacteria called “Burkholderia pseudomallei”, which can often be found in Southeast Asia and in the north of Australia, reports AFP.
This bacteria can infect humans and animals through contact with contaminated land and water, and is classified as a potential agent of bioterrorism.
The bacteria has most likely escaped from the lab that worked on the development of a vaccine against it, in November last year or even earlier.
Officials say that the pathogen was not detected on the land of the Centre, although four rhesus monkeys were infected and are kept in cages in the open, two of which are subjected to euthanasia.
And one federal inspector who visited the center in Tulane after that got ill, but points out that it is possible that she got infected with the bacteria somewhere else, since she has been traveling a lot around the world.
In the statement of the Centre, it was noted that “they don’t know if there is any threat to the population” of the escaped bacteria, and that until now no human or primate has gone sick.
However, what is of great concern is that the Centre is unable to determine how the dangerous bacteria could escape from the lab, says Richard Ebright, biosafety expert at Rutgers University in New Jersey.http://makeyourlifehealthier.com/panic-deadly-bacteria-escaped-from-the-lab/https://i0.wp.com/makeyourlifehealthier.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/PANIC-Deadly-Bacteria-Escaped-From-the-Lab.jpg?fit=600%2C320https://i0.wp.com/makeyourlifehealthier.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/PANIC-Deadly-Bacteria-Escaped-From-the-Lab.jpg?resize=150%2C150Health
