A gas explosion has sparked a fire at a Russian lab that houses viruses ranging from smallpox to Ebola, authorities have said.

The blast took place during repairs to a fifth-floor sanitary inspection room at the State Research Centre of Virology and Biotechnology – usually known as Vector – in Koltsovo, in the Novosibirsk region of Siberia, the centre said on Monday. The site housed biological weapons research during the Soviet era and is now one of Russia’s main disease research centres.


Blast sparks fire at Russian laboratory housing smallpox virus

I hope the fire killed any viruses that got loose. At least Siberia is kinda remote.

The explosion in the sanitary inspection room on the fifth floor blew out the glass (doesn't sound good). One worker got 3d degree burns. No one was killed in the blast.

Don't worry, the Russians insist no bio-hazardous substances were in the room and there was no structural damage to the building.

Russian authorities insisted that the room where the explosion occurred was holding no biohazardous substances and that no structural damage was caused.


Like if they would ever admit if it did.
Chernobyl anyone?

A bit like Boston University's Tularemia outbreaks then?





Don't count on the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to tell the public about biological weapons accidents. CDC's refusal to divulge information about the Boston University tularemia incidents will come as cold comfort for the tens of millions in the US who live close to (proposed) biological weapons labs..

Smallpox is more of a worry than ebola, but even then, we do have an effective vaccine against smallpox. The challenge would be making enough of it to effectively vaccinate everyone should smallpox erupt again into the population.

And while we don't have a good ebola vaccine. It just spreads too ineffectively to be terribly dangerous unless it gets into the tent cities on the West Coast.

Agreed but would any of that matter if man made, engineered, manipulated and combined weaponized strains released?
