What is Anthrax?

 

Anthrax is a serious infectious disease.  Although it is rare, people can get sick with anthrax if they come in contact with infected animals or contaminated products and can be life threatening.

How can humans become infected with Anthrax?

 

Anthrax can enter the human body through inhalation, ingestion or through open cuts and wounds. Anthrax can be found in building materials such as plaster, metals, in paint samples, and in soils. It is estimated to be a present contaminant in millions of buildings throughout the UK, where animal containing products have been used during the building process, including in lime based plasters.
