Quotes

Cambridge University’s Dr Peter Walsh, a lecturer in archaeology and anthropology and Ebola expert, said: "It’s possible someone infected will fly to Heathrow having infected other people sitting next to them or by using the toilet."
"One of the things that we're concerned about at the border are traditional FBI crimes -- but we see them a little more down there -- which is public corruption, money laundering and obviously drug trafficking from major crime syndicates that we're worried about" Combs said
"These awards recognize the tremendous value of our national labs," Moniz said. "Research and development at the national labs continues to help our nation address its energy challenges and pursue the scientific and technological innovations necessary to remain globally competitive."
...where laboratory workers improperly handled and stored live anthrax and another incident where workers inadvertently mixed the deadly H5N1 bird flu ") influenza virus with a far more benign influenza strain and then shipped it to an outside lab. And in a lab at the heart of the NIH campus, vials of smallpox virus labeled "1954" were found sitting for decades, posing a potential risk for bioterror -- "truly the stuff of science fiction movies," Dr. Cotton writes. She suggests that many factors including human error, poor inventory control, lax or nonexistent policies, and administrative deficiencies played a role in these situations. To contain the terror within, Dr. Cotton suggests greatly limiting the number of BSL-3 and BSL-4 labs opened in the future."
