Safety fears after potentially deadly bacteria is accidentally released from high-security Louisiana research lab

Prophecy Sign: Pestilence, Plagues & Disease 

I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth. Revelation 6:8 NIV

Safety fears after potentially deadly bacteria is accidentally released from high-security Louisiana research lab 
A potentially deadly bacteria has been accidentally released from a high-security research laboratory leading to serious safety fears. The Burkholderia pseudomallei bacteria was found in animals at the Tulane National Primate Research Center in Louisiana, which is just 35 miles north of New Orleans. The bacteria, primarily found in south-east Asia, can spread to animals and humans through direct contact with contaminated soil and water.  But despite thorough investigations by multiple authorities the cause of the release and extent of the contamination are still unknown. It is the latest in a series of significant accidents that have taken place across the country. Richard Ebright, a biosafety expert from Rutgers University in New Jersey, said the release was worrying.  'The fact that they can't identify how this release occurred is very concerning,' he told USA Today.
