Description:
This document is intended to give anoverview of the clinical management and public health implications of selected biological threat agents thought most likely to be used in terrorist attacks. The likelihood of such attacks were considered to be remote until the airliner attacks in the US on September 11th, 2001 and the mailing of finely milled anthrax spores to agencies and individuals in the US during October 2001. Systems for dealing with such incidents have been put in place by governments across the world in order to address the unlikely widespread use of such tactics by terrorist organisations. Early detection is essential for ensuring a prompt response to biological attacks
