Plum Island Animal Disease Center is a facility that studies diseases in animals and is part of the DHS Directorate for Science and Technology. The image above is an aerial view of Plum Island, located off the northeast coast of Long Island in the state of New York.
Plum Island has its own fire department, power plant, and water treatment plant.While the Plum Island remained out of reach of most humans over the past 50 years. Theirs a lot of species on the island, many wildflowers and rare and these are why talk groups are advocating that the Plum Island Animal Disease Center should be close and the risk associated with virus, the public is not allowed on the island. The officer is still hope that Plum Island will remain as is. And recently, the federal government has invested about $ 50 million in improving facilities.
“It is unlikely that it would invest so much money on something with a life expectancy of seven to 10 years,” Russell said.
“There’s a new day in Washington,” said Russell, who is hoping a new administration will decide to keep open the lab in Plum. “There are changes all over Washington.”
