Weird World: Monkeys escape with COVID-19 samples

Monkey at Batu Caves in Malaysia.

A group of monkeys escaped with COVID-19 samples after attacking a laboratory assistant.

The animals assaulted the health worker and fled with blood samples from coronavirus tests, sparking fears that they could have spread the virus in Meerut, India.

The Times of India reports that a monkey was spotted in a tree chewing one of the sample kits. Footage of the incident also went viral on Twitter.

The sample kits were later recovered and had not suffered any damage, according to Meerut Medical College Superintendent, Dheeraj Raj.

Raj added that the three people whose samples were stolen had been retested for Coronavirus. He added: “They were still intact and we don’t think there is any risk of contamination or spread.”

According to Sky, reports have previously emerged of the primates causing chaos in Delhi, snatching food and mobile telephones, breaking into homes and terrorizing people in and around the Indian capital.They have colonized areas around the city’s parliament and the sites of key ministries, from the prime minister’s office to the finance and defense ministries, scaring both civil servants and the public.
