Government Admits More Infectious Diseases In Unsafe Storage

Luke 21:11 There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven.

The Food and Drug Administration said that a federal employee who found six vials of the deadly smallpox virus in a cardboard box in a storage room at a Maryland lab also found hundreds of vials of other diseases.

The samples included influenza, rickettsia (which can cause the lethal Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever) and dengue.

FDA official said Wednesday the collection of 327 vials of the various diseases was found at the same time as the smallpox virus vials announced last week.

Testing at the CDC discovered the smallpox viruses in the vial were alive and infectious.

“The fact that these materials were not discovered until now is unacceptable,” said Karen Midthun, of FDA’s director for biologics. “However, upon finding these materials our staff did the right thing – they immediately notified the appropriate authorities who secured the materials and determined there was no exposure.”

The FDA said 32 vials of tissue samples and non-contagious virus were destroyed at the laboratory and the remaining 279 samples were sent to the Department of Homeland Security for storage.

  1. I KNOW how this is all going to end–WE WIN, because who is greater than God the Father, Jesus Christ His son, and our blessed Holy Spirit? I read THE BOOK, the BIBLE, and I believe it with all my heart and soul; I KNOW the end. There’s just too many born-again Christians in the whole world sending up their prayers for the GOOD to lose.

  2. As a member of the JERUSALEM PRAYER TEAM Israel is always in my thoughts and prayers, and I will do whatever My Lord tells me to do to help God’s chosen people. I love them, admire Bibi Netanyahu for his stamina and unwavering courage to take care of his people. There will be many rewards and crowns for him when JESUS says “well done thou good and faithful servant.”
