WASHINGTON, Conn., Oct. 30 (UPI) -- Dr. Anthony Fauci, of the National Institutes of Health, said Tuesday the diagnosis of anthrax infection in two people not connected to Capitol Hill, the media or the postal service has forced health officials to re-examine their theory the public is not likely to be exposed to anthrax spores from mail delivered to their homes. A Bronx hospital worker is in very serious condition with what preliminary tests say it inhalation anthrax infection and a bookkeeper in Trenton, N.J. has the cutaneous or skin form of the infection.
