A “small sample of frozen tuberculosis” was inadvertently released in an internal bridge between two research buildings at Johns Hopkins Medicine in Baltimore, the hospital said Thursday. The buildings are in a non-patient area and do not connect to the hospital, and officials said there was no threat of illness.
In a press conference, Landon King, Executive Vice Dean for JHU School of Medicine, said that “out of an abundance of caution” both research buildings were evacuated earlier in the day by the fire department. Public safety officials and infectious disease experts have since cleared the buildings and the evacuation has been lifted.
The article goes on to state the following:
“We have determined that there is actually no risk, meaning zero risk to anyone involved,” King said. No additional testing for people that were in these buildings or in the general area is needed, he said.
