NoLa's Biolab Mystery
In and around the Big Easy are a number of Biosafety Level 3 (BSL-3) labs, meant to handle some of the nastier biological agents out there -- stuff like anthrax, plague, and genetically-engineering mousepox. Louisiana State University’s Medical School and the State of Louisiana both ran BSL-3s within the city. Tulane kept 5,000 monkeys for biodefense studies in its "National Primate Research Center," located in nearby Covington.
Anyone seen 12 Monkeys
? Maybe they actually did something to contain that. More as this develops. This is one of the things that you need planning for. Hopefully, some smart guy had a plan, and hopefully it executed.
