Sudan crisis: WHO warns of biological hazard at seized lab

The World Health Organization (WHO) says there's a "high risk of biological hazard" at a laboratory caught up in the ongoing conflict in Sudan.
Officials said it was unclear who was behind the occupation of the National Public Health Laboratory in the capital Khartoum.
The city has been ravaged by fighting between the army and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF).
The WHO told the BBC on Tuesday that workers can no longer access the lab.
And it warned that power cuts were making it impossible to properly manage material at the lab.
Officials said that a broad range of biological and chemical materials are stored in the lab. The facility holds measles and cholera pathogens, as well as other hazardous materials.
A lack of power is also putting depleting stocks of blood bags stored at the lab at risk of spoiling.
In a press conference on Wednesday, WHO officials said it is conducting an "extensive" risk assessment of the potential public health threat following the seizure of the lab.
Fillipa Lentzos, Associate Professor in Science and International Security at King's College London, said: "It could create a risky situation, but it's a regular health lab, not a high containment facility.
"The agents which are in the lab are all diseases which are endemic in the region anyway, so they wouldn't really be classified as high risk," she told us.
Where is the lab?
The lab is near the centre of Khartoum and not far from city's main airport.
It lies just outside the area where Sudan's military headquarters are located, and where a lot of the fighting has been taking place.

The particular geography of Khartoum means key strategic sites which are being targeted, such as military buildings, are close to critical infrastructure.
Both the military headquarters and the airport are right next to a residential area, with several schools and hospitals nearby.
Only a fraction of health facilities in Khartoum are providing services due to a lack of staff, medicine and other supply shortages, power outages, or attacks.
The Federal Ministry of Health in Sudan has reported that 36% of health facilities in Khartoum city are non-functional and another 25% are unresponsive.

      Simple as pie. Dirty dangerous and degrading jobs are not welcome here. The reason why this country no longer manufactures "stuff" here is because the powers that be don't want all the toxins and poisons associated with all the things this country (read: military) wants. That includes everything from murder bugs to semiconductor manufacturing.

    To everyone who thinks it is wrong to make viruses more deadly?
    I AGREE 100%

    Now, does that mean we should not look to make a virus that SPREADS more, and does less harm? (Like Omicron?)

    Okay, I am NOT against the latter.

    The problem is that the people in charge CANNOT be trusted.

    The TRUE problem is that they PROMOTE from within. Fauci is a Fraud and the perfect example.

    I QUICKLY recognized Covid as the HIV debacle, 2.0 ... It's as if HIV was a Dry Run (DId you know, that back then, anyone who questioned NIAID, etc. LOST their PRESS Access? Did you know they ABUSED PCR Testing, to the point the INVENTOR spoke out about it? The book: The Real Anthony Fauci points these things out!)

        Well, we will see. Kinda sounds familiar, doesn't it?

        I am torn as to whether they KNEW the vaccine was going to be HORRIBLE, or that it was (as it appears) to be A QUALITY control issue. (BTW, one that is SO BAD, that Pfizer Employees selected their vaccines to come from only SPECIFIC batches)

          So Pharma barely tested it, and hid those poor results, and previous versions that were tested were a disaster.
          Yes, I think they knew what to expect, and so did the government official "experts" who gave it emergency approval.
          Guilty of murder and many other crimes.

            Evidence from a European study showed 60%+ of VAERS reports came from a specific batch number. I don’t know how many batch numbers there were but it makes sense for the genocidal freaks to not have safe “ results “ also. I suspect some were just saline solution. I totally agree that those involved should not survive. Nuremberg 2.0

    The WHO and the NIH are the ones responsible for the building and daily controls of these dangerous laboratories. I suspect most are built where they are because of the "Not in my backyard" syndrome. Put them in places no one gives a damn about. I also suspect the release of these diseases will be the next pandemic scare the Dumocrats will run to the banks with. Keep your foolish masks handy!

      Rule #1: If nobody wants it in their back yard, at any price... We probably should not be doing it, or we need to educate people better.

      The latter point is about Nuclear. I would gladly take a GEN IV reactor in my back yard!

    I have zero trust in WHO, just like NIH! Only WHO is just an arm of the UN. I had heard reports of ebola being found. That is what was engineered in Winipeg, and then sent to China virology lab. At the same time we have addict Hunter controlling who gets access to those multiple biolabs in Ukraine, like the fox guaarding the henhouse! We keep returning to possible depopulation as called for in UN AGenda 21.

    The thing many of us are missing here regarding the vaccines is the word "Experimental" in front of all of them. We, or those who did take them, are the guinea pigs in these experiments. I avoided all of them yet now I have a deep fear about them injecting the Experimental mRNA shit into our food supply without any pre warning. If that does happen I think this will be the button that begins the SHTF uprising.
