Zoonotic Diseases as the Agents in Bioterrorism
MetadataShow full item record
Bioterrorism means the unlawful use or threatened use of microorganisms or toxins derived from living organisms to produce death or disease in humans, animals or plants. The act is intended to create fear and/or intimidate governments or societies in the pursuit of political, religious or ideological goals. It is important that recognition of and preparation for a biological attack is similar to that for any disease outbreak, but the surveillance, response or other demands on resources would likely be of an unparalleled intensity. A strong public health infrastructure with epidemiological investigation capability, practical training programs and preparedness plans are essential to prevent and control disease outbreaks, whether they are naturally occurring or otherwise.
