Yesterday, we reported that three CDC test monkeys escaped from a truck during a crash on the interstate highway in Pennsylvania. Roughly 100 monkeys were inside the truck when it crashed. The CDC reported that it was monitoring local residents for cold-like symptoms. Today, a woman who came in to contact with the monkeys shared an update about her condition and a firsthand account of the incident. The Epoch Times Reports–
“A woman who said she came into contact with escaped monkeys in Pennsylvania several days ago said that she’s not sick.
“I want people to know I am not sick, I found out I was at a birthday party Friday night and people there had COVID-19,” Michelle Fallon told local news outlet the Daily Item. “I was exposed to the monkeys and exposed to people with COVID. It was the worst day of my life.”
Fallon, meanwhile, said she was only taking precautions from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and state health officials.
“I explained what happened and they said I was at very low risk of anything but I went to get checked out anyway because I started to not feel well,” Fallon told the newspaper. “I want people to know I am not sick regardless of what they are reading that has been put out there in the media,” she continued. “I only spoke to a few media outlets but I have been talking to PETA.”
