Vial of Deadly Virus goes Missing from Galveston lab
GALVESTON, Texas (AP) - Officials say a vial containing a virus that can cause haemorrhagic fever has gone missing from a research facility in Galveston, but say there's no reason to believe there's a threat to the public.
Saturday, the medical branch of the University of Texas said there was "no breach in the security" of its Galveston National Laboratory and "no indication of wrongdoing". They suspect the missing vial containing the Guanarito virus, as it is officially named, may have been destroyed during the lab's clean-up process, but they are continuing to investigate just to make certain there has not been a breach, or that the public is in danger.
This virus is spread by Venuzuelan rats. Officials claim that the virus won't incubate in rats in the United States. So long as the South American rats are not turned loose to propagate in North America, we should consider ourselves out of danger.
After the vial was discovered missing Wednesday,the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was immediately notified.
