The monkey underwent a blood test and will have another test in 14 days and another 21 days. Carter will remain in quarantine for 30 days.

The employee is going through the same blood tests. If the worker contracted Herpes B, he will be treated. The hospital employee is also being treated for rabies.

Two prisoners got married in front of family, prison guards and convicted felons.

The two men who are convicted murderers, tied the knot in Britain’s first gay prison marriage.

However, the couple was banned from sharing the same prison cell.

Mikhail Gallatinov, 40, and Marc Goodwin, 31, made history when they exchanged vows at the visitor center at the Full Sutton Prison in East Yorkshire.

The 20-minute ceremony was attended by several family members, four prison officials and a handful of prisoners. The ceremony was concluded with the couple sharing a kiss and a slice of cake.

A prison spokesperson said that it was made clear that they “are certainly not allowed to share a cell.”

Gallatinov, a convicted pedophile, was sentenced to life in prison with a minimum of 20 years, for the murder of a man he met through a gay chat line back in 1997.

Goodwin received a life sentence in 2007, for killing a gay man in Blackpool.

The relationship was known to many in the maximum security prison. These two men were in separate wings in the prison, but they managed to have sex in the prison library on numerous occasions.

Gallatinov’s father said that despite his son’s violent past, he deserves to find a soulmate.

“If you find love, you have to go for it, even in jail. Everyone deserves to be happy,” his father said.
