Hi! I am the Managing Editor for Nerdbot.com I enjoy watching anime, learning about new things and keeping up with Nerd Culture. I love writing and hope to introduce people to things that they may not have known about before through my articles.

What we’re going to tell you definitely sounds like something out of a pandemic horror movie. But hey isn’t that kind of what we’re living in already? Earlier today on CNN News it was reported that monkeys stole blood samples at a government hospital in the Meerut district of the north Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. And not only did they steal these samples but also chewed on the packets and then threw them from trees.

According to the report Dr. Dheeraj Baliyan, medical superintendent of Lala Lajpat Rai Memorial Medical College and Hospital, told CNN the samples were stolen Thursday (May 28th) while a lab assistant was carrying them to the testing facility. The monkeys attacked the lab assistant and then stole the box they were carrying.

The samples were blood samples of people who had tested positive for COVID-19. They were the result of drawing blood after doing the swab test that is sent out for verification. The samples were part of a routine collection that is usually done after a person has tested positive for coronavirus.

After stealing the samples the monkeys then climbed trees, chewed on them and then threw them to the ground. The hospital says that they have thoroughly sanitized the area but there is no way for them to know if the blood would have any effect on the monkeys unless capture and tests are completed.

The district administration has ordered an inquiry against the hospital authorities for alleged mishandling of the samples. It seems like it would be a hard argument if the lab assistant was really attacked. Because how are you supposed to prevent something like that? As of Friday stands at 165,799, including 4,706 deaths have been logged in India.
