Monkeys Steal COVID-19 Samples After Attacking Lab Assistant

A group of monkeys reportedly attacked a laboratory assistant in Delhi, India and escaped with a number of coronavirus blood samples.

According to local media, the red-faced rhesus macaques snatched Covid-19 blood samples from four patients and fled the facilities near the Meerut Medical College in Delhi.

The Times of India reported that one of the monkeys was later spotted in a tree chewing one of the sample collection kits.

Dr S. K. Garg, a top official at the college, told Reuters:

“Monkeys grabbed and fled with the blood samples of four Covid-19 patients who are undergoing treatment… we had to take their blood samples again.”

He added: “No evidence has been found that monkeys can contract the infection.”
