The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention plans to hire a chief of laboratory safety, a new post that has taken on more urgency after a CDC scientist was possibly exposed to Ebola in a laboratory last week.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will hold a public briefing on January 16 on how emergency responders should prepare for a nuclear attack on US soil.

It’s clearly a sign of the times when the government takes the nuclear threat from North Korea (and China) seriously enough to instruct public health officials in how to minimize deaths and illnesses.

Daily Caller:

“While a nuclear detonation is unlikely, it would have devastating results and there would be limited time to take critical protection steps,” the CDC said in the description for the session. “Despite the fear surrounding such an event, planning and preparation can lessen deaths and illness.”
