"Operation Vegetarian" was an allied military operation during World War II involving the anthrax bacillus. The British made cakes with anthrax spores and planned to drop them on the fields of Germany to wipe out the beef and dairy herds. This was planned for the summer of 1944 but was never carried out. How likely do you think that a biological terrorist attack could be successful in this country? Are we prepared to respond to a biological attack?
Answer: This question i have to write pointswise,because it's easy to understand you......
So, there could be a scarcity of foods and people could die with starvation. This strategy could be very successful.
We are not adequately prepared yet to respond to a biological attack. Smallpox and anthrax are the two major concerns in this world.
In US,the anthrax vaccination is not available for most of the general population.
Smallpox vaccines are available to medicate only 12-15 million people.
There is a vaccine against the bubonic plague but it needs to be administered during a four- to seven-month period before exposure.
There is also the danger that terrorists could develop new strains of smallpox and anthrax. The time required to develop and establish a new vaccine is estimated to be about 36 months.
Rapid detection of a disease outbreak also creates a problem since many doctors have not been trained in how to recognize early symptoms of scourges like anthrax and smallpox.
Early symptoms of anthrax can appear as a simple flu. The early signs of smallpox become more obvious about three days following exposure when lesions begin appearing.
Some experts consider that emergency medical facilities are insufficient to handle a widespread attack.
