The World Health Organization has asked over 5,000 labs to destroy a virus that was accidentally sent to them. The virus is responsible for the 1957 flu pandemic that killed millions of people.
If a worker should get infected, the virus will rapidly spread.
The good news is that if you were born before 1968, you’re immunized against the strain. If you were born after 1968, hope to God that the interns aren’t in charge at the lab today.
