Tuberculosis sample subconsciously released in hospital

Employees who in the area during the incident were isolated and evaluated and later cleared. Officials did not say how it might have been released.

"Although we believe that this was a one-time event with no risk to anyone on campus, we take this event seriously and will conduct a thorough review of existing procedures, retrain staff and make any other needed improvements", Willis said.

According to WMAR, a small amount of tuberculosis was released into two Johns Hopkins cancer centers. This occurred on a bridge between two research buildings that do not connect to the hospital.

The hospital released a statement at around 2 p.m.

USA service member killed, 2 wounded in 'apparent insider attack' in Afghanistan
Additional information was not immediately available and the incident was under investigation. An insider attack would indicate one carried out by a member of the Afghan security forces.

"We have determined that there is actually no risk, meaning zero risk to anyone involved", said Landon King, the executive vice dean for Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Baltimore City Fire and Rescue responded to the scene initiating "hazmat protocols" for handling hazardous materials. The hospital has verified that they turned off the ventilation system within the hospital immediately after the reported spill because tuberculosis is an airborne bacterial disease that can infect the respiratory system.

The two buildings remained off limits for several hours, and were reopened after public safety officials and infectious disease experts gave the all-clear, according to the report. In 2016, only 9,272 TB cases were reported, the lowest toll recorded yet. The bacteria affect the lungs, which can lead to chest pain, fatigue, fever, prolonged coughing or coughing up blood, night sweats, and loss of appetite.

According to the Mayo Clinic, tuberculosis infections was once rare in developed countries but began increasing in 1985, but cases in the United States began to decrease again in 1993 due to stronger control programs.
