Description

WJLA-TV "examined the deadly 2001 anthrax outbreak at the Brentwood Postal Facility in Washington, D.C. (The station) learned postal officials knew of the anthrax contamination several days before shutting the plant down. During this 'lag time,' many workers continued to fall ill at the plant with anthrax symptoms. (WJLA-TV) also uncovered inequities between the anthrax outbreak at the Brentwood facility and the outbreak on Capitol Hill. While Capitol Hill workers were evacuated and a Senate office building was immediately fumigated and cleansed, Brentwood workers continued to work under suspicious conditions. In fact, the Brentwood facility still has not been cleaned or fumigated to this day."
