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.
Near the United Nations Glass Palace in New York, there is a metallic sculpture entitled "Evil Defeated by Good", representing Saint George transfixing a dragon with his lance. It was donated by the USSR in 1990 to celebrate the INF Treaty concluded with the USA in 1987
