Abstract:   (4390 Views)
Bioterrorism refers to the deliberate spread of biological agents such as viruses, bacteria, insects, fungi or toxins among human societies, causing irreparable damage, such as human fatality, considerable recession and social stress. Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) will present new aspects of bioterrorism impacts on the worldchr('39')s population and economy. Future bioterrorism is therefore different from what we have seen in the past. The use of viruses will be a reasonable choice to overthrow nations due to their high spread and lethality, lack of conflict on the battlefield, or high economic and human costs. Therefore, the tragedy of COVID-19 is not just about its current mortality, and in the not-too-distant future, we can expect even more complicated problems.
Keywords: Bioterrorism, Virus disease, COVID-19, Biological agents
