Lab worker ex­posed to Ebola from pigs

China Daily (USA) - - WORLD -

An em­ployee in a high-level Cana­dian lab­o­ra­to­ry­may have been ac­ci­den­tally ex­posed to Ebola on Mon­day while work­ing with pigs who were in­fected with the virus as part of an ex­per­i­ment, gov­ern­ment of­fi­cials said on Tues­day. Ebola at­tracted global at­ten­tion in 2014 dur­ing an epi­demic in­West Africa that killed thou­sands. The Win­nipeg an­i­mal dis­ease lab is on the same site as a mi­cro­bi­ol­ogy lab­o­ra­tory where sci­en­tists de­vel­oped an ex­per­i­men­tal Ebola vac­cine.
