Quotes

"It must have been a little boring in heaven the last few weeks, and so God looked around the Earth, and he found the most interesting, dynamic, fantastic person he could, and he said, 'Hally you've gotta come be with me.'"
Frieden said the type of H5N1 "is one that does concern us because it can be quite deadly both for poultry and for people"
"The incidents, which raise troubling questions about the government's ability to safely store and transport dangerous microbes, prompted the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to halt operations at its bioterrorism rapid-response lab and an influenza lab and impose a moratorium on any biological material leaving numerous other CDC labs."
