As easily as pharmacists can give you a wrong prescription, a lab can dispense a wrong virus. In government biological arsonals it's no different.
Labels, interpretation, supplies, vials, laziness, inventory, work stress, counting are all inaccurate and can lead to mistakes.
All countries have arsonals containing all viruses, TB, measels, cholera, H1N1, pesticides, chemicals, herbicides, ebola, mustard gas, and so on. The
condition of these facilities depends on quality control. In some countries that quality control is less than we would expect.
When Mexico was faced with a demand from the US they would comply. Their stray dog situation caused a mutation in rabies that would cause it to spread
from human to human. Mexico's response, which was a good one, was to tackle the rabies problem at the source, dogs.
Since strychnine wasn't working and it was poisoning the local poor people who eat trash, Mexico had to come up with another solution to killing
stray dogs. I can imagine top scientists approving H8N5 for extermination of stray dogs, quick efficient, no danger to the public. What happened after
that... was, well, a mistake. Because the top scientists and doctors are making the decisions, not delivering the solution personally, they have
people for that.
It's possible that Mexico released H1N1 thinking it was H8N5 into a small test area outside Vera Cruz. Weeks later the stray dog situation had not
improved but humans were getting sick.
