3rd Person In Florida Diagnosed With Anthrax!

Thu Oct 11, 2001 9:16 am

A 3rd person from Florida has been diagnosed with Anthrax. Apparently, the person worked in the same building as the first 2. More updates as they become available.

In the past 100 years, there were 18 human anthrax cases in the world. We had 3 in one place within days of each other. Does anyone still doubts that foul play was involved?

A coworker of mine thinks that someone mailed it to the Sun with a letter saying "it's this easy" and the people there started joking around with it and not taking it seriously.

Now they are...

Could it be the work of terrorists, or possibly a disgruntled ex-employee?

Anthrax is incredibly hard (and expensive!) to make. It's more likely this is natural.

The FBI reported that the strain of Anthrax was man-made.

18 cases of inhaled anthrax. Skin anthrax is much more common.
