This is an emergency bulletin issued by The Daily News after learning that for the second time in four months officials have confirmed the presence of Novichuk. We are issuing this warning to our readers with a clear set of guidelines if you encounter an odd substance or odor.
On Wednesday, British officials confirmed that two more people have fallen dangerously ill after being contaminated with a military grade nerve agent named Novichuk. The nerve agent is indeed made out of the Soviet Union, however, officials still haven’t fully figured out how it ended up in the United Kingdom.
“We can confirm that the man and woman have been exposed to the nerve agent Novichok, which has been identified as the same nerve agent that contaminated both Yulia and Sergei Skripal,” says Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu of London’s Metropolitan Police.
We will update this page as more becomes available. It is unknown if the two involved were actually targeted.
