ATLANTA, GEORGIA (Worthy News)– Roughly 75 workers for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta may have unintentionally been exposed to anthrax, CNN reported.
They are being monitored or provided antibiotics.
"Based on most of the potential exposure scenarios, the risk of infection is very low," the agency said in a statement.
"CDC believes that other CDC staff, family members, and the general public are not at risk of exposure and do not need to take any protective action." — Source
