Example text

He has come to Moscow today to argue once again the case for anthrax-infected meat as the source of the epidemic, and he has brought documents to support his case. I have not seen him since his 1988 visit to the United States. That he is visibly older and thinner reminds me of how each year diminishes the cast of players from 1979. Still, at over six feet tall, with thick white hair, a heavy brow with protruding platinum eyebrows, and a barrel chest, Burgasov remains a commanding, almost operatic presence, like a character in Boris Godunov.

Olga Yampolskaya has warned us that the two men might come to blows if they meet. Our scheduling of appointments is admittedly not brilliant, but we have arranged for Nikiforov to be shown to an office securely distant, we hope, from the conference room. Yampolskaya and David Walker are waiting for him there, ready to review whatever the photographs reveal. Leaving Matthew, Alexis Shelokov, and our veterinarian, Martin Hugh-Jones, to begin discussion with Burgasov, I cross the hall and traverse several connecting rooms to check that our second visitor has safely reached his destination.

We are met by our host at the Institute, Dr. Yevgeniy Sverdlov (no relation to the Bolshevik Sverdlov for whom Yekaterinburg was previously named), the institute’s director and an internationally known molecular geneticist. In the institute’s conference room waits the former Deputy Minister of Health, Dr. Pyotr Burgasov, the lone survivor of the three key Soviet physicians who developed evidence that the Sverdlovsk epidemic was gastrointestinal. In 1979 Burgasov was the senior official sent from Moscow to handle the outbreak.
