Finger employee of the lab started to rot after she accidentally injected herself with a virus related to the smallpox, during an experiment on mice.
Finger 26-year-old woman was blackened and it formed an abscess filled with pus at the injection site, when the infection began to develop on the tip of her index finger.
The woman, whose name was not called, lives in San Diego. She accidentally stuck myself with a needle when you injected mice with a virus ospowiki as an experiment.
The virus ospowiki closely linked to smallpox, but it is not as dangerous. It does not lead to the development of the disease, but is used for the manufacture of a vaccine for the virus.
Immediately after the incident, the woman for 15 minutes, washed your finger with water, and then immediately went to the Department of resuscitation and intensive therapy.
After 10 days the finger laboratory employee swelled and formed green abscess at the tip. Finger itched incredibly, and she has a fever. When the symptoms subsided on day 12, the doctor prescribed her a course of antiviral medications, and antibiotics to prevent the development of bacterial infection in the wound. She also was given a dose of immunoglobulin to the virus opulencia, which is composed of antibodies obtained from people who had already been vaccinated against the disease. Within 2 days of treatment the woman was the temperature and almost slept the swelling.
As reported in the journal Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, the woman offered vaccination against smallpox before the beginning of work with virus ospowiki, but she refused to do it, because it is not “estimated the size of an infection which could develop”. In addition, she was terrified of the possible side effects of vaccinations.
Why would @cdcgov allow lab to hire anyone who refuses immunization against virulents she works with?

Interestingly, the very first victim of smallpox is considered to be Pharaoh Ramses V of Egypt, who died in 1157 BC, and whose mummy still bears traces of the scars of the disease.
When the Spaniards arrived at the territory of modern Haiti and the Dominican Republic, where in 1509, they created sugar plantations, the disease killed 2.5 million local residents in 10 years.
More than 200 years ago, Dr. Edward Jenner made an important discovery, which led to the appearance of the first vaccines. He found that tailsize who have appeared harmless to people cow pox due to daily contact with animals, were protected from the human form of smallpox.
The last outbreak in Europe occurred in 1972, when vaccinating 20 million people after a pilgrim returned to Yugoslavia from Mecca had infected 175 people.
