The Centers for Disease Control sign is seen at its main facility in Atlanta
The Centers for Disease Control sign is seen at its main facility in Atlanta, Georgia June 20, 2014. U.S. authorities increased to 84 people their count of government workers potentially exposed to live anthrax at three laboratories in Atlanta as they investigated a breach in safety procedures for handling the deadly pathogen. Researchers in the CDC's high-security Bioterror Rapid Response and Advanced Technology laboratory realized they had sent live anthrax bacteria, instead of what they thought were harmless samples, to fellow scientists in two lower-security labs at the agency.

Lassa fever, named after the Nigerian town where it was first identified in 1969, is among a U.S. list of "category A" diseases - deemed to have the potential for major public health impact - alongside anthrax and botulism. The disease is carried by the Mastomys Natalensis rodent, found across sub-Saharan Africa and often eaten as a source of protein. It infects an estimated 300,000-500,000 people each year, and kills about 5,000. Picture taken February 8, 2011.

American researcher Matt Boisen works in the Lassa fever laboratory at Kenema Government Hospital in southeastern Sierra Leone, February 7, 2011. Boisen's laboratory in southeastern Sierra Leone is an outpost of the U.S. government's "war on terror", funded by a surge in bio-defence spending since the airplane and anthrax attacks on New York and Washington a decade ago. American research aims to limit the vulnerability of western interests to biological agents. In the case of Lassa swift and simple diagnosis is seen as critical to doing that.

British medical personnel tend to a "casualty" in a mock chemical attack at Bank underground station in central London, September 7, 2003. The exercise, which does not involve members of the public or real chemicals and is designed to test London's ability to cope with a terror attack, began at 1148 BST (British Summer Time) on Sunday and is designed to test the response of the police, ambulance and fire services to such an incident. The scenario being acted out is that a chemical is released on a busy train travelling from Waterloo to Bank station in the heart of the City of London.(Credit : REUTERS/POOL/Heathcliff O'Malley - The Daily Telegraph)
