In addition to the cases mentioned here, there has been one instance in
which a handler was infected through a splattering of something into the
eye. She bent down to console a caged monkey and felt a tiny something go
into her eye. She did not receive Acyclovir and her young life was cut
short. Her mother is one of my dearest friends, and it is very difficult for
me to even think about it. 20/20 will have a segment about her life this
Friday night, the 10th.

The key is to wear protective equipment. Take no chances.
