fbi showed up for some missing house tranquilizers? I'm guessing a missing super virus would be about as urgent to them as "we kind of can't find a nuclear warhead we were transporting, but it's probably ok."
Good news is that the cleaning process they think it went into completely destroys the virus. The bad news is, only way to tell is to check records for a clerical error that sent it to be destroyed. The scary news is, that sounds like it could easily be a false positive and there could be a true beach.
We are heavily regulated (as most biological research centers are) by the USDA and since we do bio warfare research the DOD is involved too. Ketamine is a controlled substance, all those bottles are accounted for at several points. All are accounted for before they are destroyed or sent to autoclave. What I'm getting at with all this is if we are going through this much in our BSL-2 labs with a basic anesthetic, how do you lose 1 of 5 vials of a deadly, nearly untreatable, contagious virus in a BSL-4 lab (the highest security level lab status).
See, that's what scares me. If they can say " oops, clerical error, looks like it got incinerated," what's stopping a security breach from occurring where a vial is sent to disposal but intercepted? Scary stuff, I hope the physical security is tighter than that but I'm not sure.
Every entrance and exit of that place should have at least 1 camera running on it 24/7. They should be able to figure out what happened. It might be time consuming, but it shouldn't be difficult.
