CDC reports possible Ebola exposure

ATLANTA (CNN) — A technician from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will be monitored for three weeks after possibly being exposed to the Ebola virus at one of the agency’s Atlanta labs, the CDC said Wednesday.

The CDC said in a written statement that a small amount of material from an experiment was mistakenly transferred from one lab to another and it might have contained the live virus. The incident was discovered Tuesday.

The technician has no symptoms of the illness, CDC Director of Public Relations Barbara Reynolds said in the statement.

“Others who entered the lab have been contacted and will be assessed for possible exposure by the CDC Occupational Health Clinic. As of this time we believe exposure requiring monitoring is limited to one individual,” the CDC said.

There is no possibility of exposure outside the lab and no risk to the public, the statement said.
