"The letter that arrived here had a powder. The powder was tested and found to be negative. It was tested at least once, maybe twice and found to be negative. Then later on, there was skin test, a biopsy that was done, and that came back positive early this morning. The C-D-C notified us early this morning. So, the test of the powder was negative to Anthrax, the skin test was positive to Anthrax. But if it is the powder, the powder goes back to September 25th, and you don't have any additional numbers of people reporting symptoms, the chances that this is contained according to the C-D-C and we just finished a long conference call with them, the chances that this is contained are very good."

"At this juncture of this investigation, I'll say one more time, we have no information whatsoever that correlates what we have here with what New York has there and, likewise, we have no information to indicate that this is a terrorist action."
8. SOUNDBITE: (English) Dr. Bradley Perkins, Center for Disease Control:
"We are applying methods that are quite common in public health and that is the identification of concentric circles of possible risk for exposure, and we are identifying and suggesting that a very small number of postal mail sorters involved with the delivery of mail to the A-M-I building be tested with nasal swabs. Again, this a step of extraordinary precaution to ensure the public's safety."

"Well, very clearly, we are at the early stages of the investigation here and you are one hundred percent correct to indicate that it would be inappropriate to draw conclusions based upon evidence which is not conclusive. And while these are separate investigations, we want to have the investigations to communicate with each other and be conversant with each other, because it may be that we would see commonalities which would suggest that it may be that we would see commonalities, I'm not trying to suggest that there are."

A second threatening envelope possibly containing anthrax was delivered to the offices of another American news media giant on Friday.
The envelope was addressed to Judith Miller, a reporter at the New York Times, who has written a book about germ warfare.
Police crime scene investigators were called to The Times to collect evidence. The investigators sealed off sections of the building where the envelope might have been handled.
Earlier on Friday it was revealed that an N-B-C News employee in New York tested positive for anthrax in tests done after the company received suspicious mail.
At a joint news conference with television network executives, New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, it was announced that this was not the same type of anthrax found in Florida.
The female employee of N-B-C has a cutaneous - or skin - anthrax infection and is responding well to treatment, according to the network.
The mayor said the N-B-C case may date back to September 25, two weeks after the terrorist attacks in New York and Washington.
N-B-C President Andrew Lack said the woman, who has not been identified, works on "Nightly News." The network said the employee is being treated with antibiotics and is expected to recover.
C-B-S said it has shut down its New York mailroom as a precaution and is not accepting any new mail.
C-B-S's disclosure comes a week after Bob Stevens, a photo editor at The Sun tabloid newspaper in Boca Raton, Florida, died of the more serious inhaled form of anthrax.
The American Media Inc. building where several tabloids are published was sealed off after anthrax was detected on the keyboard of Stevens, 63.
Traces of anthrax were later found in the mailroom where two other American Media workers, Ernesto Blanco and Stephanie Dailey, both worked, a law enforcement official said Thursday.
Both tested positive for exposure to anthrax, but neither developed the disease. Both are taking antibiotics and Dailey has even returned to work.
