Dr. Hector Lombardo, National Minister of Health, confirmed yesterday the presence of Anthrax in a letter that was sent from Miami, USA. This information was released after a second biological test was performed in Buenos Aires.
The envelope was received by a man at home, and he opened it a day later at his office in a Citibank branch. However, local authorities confirmed that nobody was infected. Nevertheless, Ministry of Health officials repeated instructions to the population on how to act in case of the reception of further suspicious correspondence. More than 200 envelopes were delivered to different laboratories for Anthrax testing, as the addressees did not recognize senders.
