Robert De Niro, among other Hollywood celebs may be at risk from possible anthrax infection, after visiting head quarters of New York State governor George Pataki.
The stars, including Kathleen Turner, Glenn Close and liza minnelli, were part of a campaign to improve the tourist situation in New York, following the terrorist attacks in America, on 11th September (2001).
Anthrax spores were later found in the government quarters and the building sealed and evacuated. Officials have advised those with possible contamination to take a course of antibiotics and seek advice from their doctors.
This latest scare follows the infection of seven government officials, who are being treated for Anthrax exposure.
