Weekend read: Anthrax has hit Glasgow

This is a brilliant Wired feature about a relatively recent outbreak of anthrax amongst intravenous drug users in Glasgow, and Health Protection Scotland’s subsequent investigation. The fact that I loved this article so much is certainly influence by my job as a Public Health doctor, but I think most people will have at least some interest in this fascinating case.
