I almost wish this had been in The Onion. “NIH’s Biodefense Lab Review Overlooked Risks of Dangerous Disease Outbreak” It’s the same old story. Errors will occur. People are the weak link. They will fail to follow procedures. They will have accidents. And then there are car crashes and power failures and fires. You must plan for all your usual precautions failing. Putting a lab for dangerous microbes in the heart of a city might be convenient for commuting, but it’s dumb as dirt for disaster.
