Ebola virus sent out of high-security lab was likely dead: CDC

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 02/05/2015 - 07:53

A transmission electron micrograph shows Ebola virus particles in this undated handout image released by the USAMRIID in Fredrick, MarylandBy Julie Steenhuysen CHICAGO (Reuters) - An internal investigation of an Ebola incident at a U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention laboratory in December found that samples sent to a lower-security lab were "unlikely" to have contained live virus and posed no threat to staff, the CDC said on Wednesday. The close call followed mishaps involving anthrax and a deadly strain of bird flu, raising questions about how the agency handles the world's deadliest pathogens. CDC Director Dr. Tom Frieden said the agency had made "real progress" to improve safety, "but we have more to do." The report found that on Dec. 22, a scientist working with Ebola, which in 2014 caused the worst recorded outbreak in West Africa, inadvertently transferred a small amount of virus from a high-biosecurity lab to a lower-biosecurity one not authorized to handle live Ebola. "That concerned me," said Scott Becker of the? Association of Public Health Laboratories.
