OMG NIH Finds Deadly Disease Samples Just Sitting Around for Decades

After discovering an unauthorized collection of smallpox vials that had been collecting dust in a cold storage room for decades in July, the National Institutes of Health began a safety sweep to check and see what other deadly pathogens might be sitting in the backs of lab fridges around their facilities, reports Business Insider.
They found five dangerous agents, including the potentially deadly toxin ricin and pathogens that cause plague, botulism, tularemia, and melioidosis, a tropical disease.
The NIH is just another slow incompetent bureaucracy that in the long run will do more harm than good. Government as an agent of help, rescue, competence and preparedness is a myth.
