CDC: Potential Ebola Exposure in Lab



CDC officials revealed today that a dozen scientists may have been exposed to Ebola in a lab at its Atlanta complex. The potential exposure occurred on Monday when scientists accidentally put samples of the virus in a place where it was transferred to a second lab for processing.

The worker who processed it and about a dozen other scientists who entered that lab are being monitored for Ebola symptoms for the next 21 days.

The incident caps off a year that has seen a number of CDC errors that have put workers at risk, including one accident that potentially exposed dozens of workers to Anthrax. Read more at the Washington Post.
