Mayor Bloomberg is holding a briefing on the developing story.
Basically a man contracted Anthrax while handling animal skins while on a trip to the west coast of Africa. He uses the skins to make drums. The skins were infested with the disease and he brought them back to a storage center in Dumbo (Brooklyn).
So far 4 people have been brought in for possible exposure to Anthrax.
This is not an attack, it is natural Anthrax and is no risk to the general public. If you show symptoms of Anthrax exposure, put down the animal skin drumb and get to the hospital.
