Covance Laboratories in Chandler Arizona recently built an animal testing facility without meeting CDC biosafety level 3 minimum standards. A group of monkeys were shipped from quarantine to this facility. During their first round of cosmetic toxicity tests, a pair suddenly died. As the handlers were bringing their bodies to disposal the monkeys reanimated and attacked. Three handlers were injured in the process of destroying the infected monkeys and have since been discharged from the hospital with minor injuries. The handlers have been identified as Skot Leach, Tim Martin, and Steve Barkyoumb.
Fifty members of the US Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases aeromedical isolation team were deployed by osprey in biohazard suits. They exterminated 450 exposed animals and sealed the facility intending to avoid a potentially fatal outbreak to the community.
This pathogen is a new strain of biosafety level 3 hot agent solanum-T zombie virus. The F1 monkeys were infected by ticks of the family Ixodidae. Quarantine period was insufficent due to a 30 day internal dormancy period in mammals.
Studies revealed the Covance Chandler solanum-T virus strain is unique in that it is airborne transmissable! All laboratory employees were exposed, placing the Community of the entire Phoenix metropolitan area at risk of exposure!
The National Guard has closed all airports and highways leading out of the area and are policing City limits in biohazard suits. Ditches are being dug in the desert in anticpation of body disposal of the victims.
