Prepare for and Survive Biological Warfare and Accidents

  1. 1. Prepare for and Survive Biological Warfare
  2. 2. There are three types of weapons of mass destruction: Nuclear, Biological and Chemical. Most of us are unaware of biological weapons.
  3. 3. Biological warfare is the use of infectious agents or toxins to incapacitate or kill humans, plants or animals. Bioterrorism is the same, except not state- sponsored. Biological Warfare
  4. 4. As long as there has been warfare, humans have used biological warfare in various forms. Biological Warfare
  5. 5. The problem with biological weapons has always been that they are indiscriminate. They kill the side employing them as effectively as the side they are used against. Biological Warfare
  6. 6. What is on the horizon, and probably already developed in secret, are genetic weapons, which are targeted toward specific ethnicities and/or genotypes. The implications of such weapons are staggering. I explored this in the book to the right. Genetic Weapons
  7. 7. Consider how the USS Roosevelt was made combat ineffective by one infected sailor. Imagine deliberate infections of crew members while on shore leave— an inexpensive way to negate a multi-billion dollar, powerful weapon
  8. 8. What To Do? Depending on where you live and how much you travel will determine your chances of getting infected. If you live in an urban setting, the chances are higher. Biological Warfare/Pandemic
  9. 9. What To Do? Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw it away after use. Use a mask if you become aware that people are getting sick. Biological Warfare/Pandemic
  10. 10. What To Do? Wash your hands with soap and water. Use disinfection. One curious fact brought up in Contagion was the number of times we touch our faces with our hands. Biological Warfare/Pandemic
  11. 11. What To Do? A mask is essential if you must go out. Since COVID-19 most people accept this. However make sure you have the right mask. An N-95 is preferred. If you buy a KN-95, check to make sure it’s not one of many cheap, ineffective models on the market. Biological Warfare/Pandemic
  12. 12. What To Do? Stay away from the sick people. That sounds easy, but what if you’re a first responder or a health care provider? Stay away from crowds. Biological Warfare/Pandemic
  13. 13. What To Do? If it’s a true pandemic, it’s not likely that a hospital is a place to go as it will quickly become overwhelmed with the sick and dying. While COVID-19 has been bad, most experts agree we haven’t seen the “big one” yet. The bottom line is to stay aware and isolate yourself and your team as quickly as possible.
