The Complete Bioterrorism Survival Guide
Everything You Need to Know Before, During and After An AttackPaperback - 2006
Intelligence, government, and bio-defence experts believe it is only a matter of time until there is another major terrorist attack on American soil. They are concerned that next time the assault will include deadly biological agents and will result in hundreds, thousands, or even tens of thousands of victims. And yet the majority of Americans still don't know where to go for critical information concerning bioterrorism. "The Complete Bioterrorism Survival Guide" addresses the growing number of citizen requests for practical information in an easily accessible format, providing straightforward, useful guidelines and tools for surviving a bioterrorist attack. This is a must-have for every American home and every public library. The threat of bioterrorism-smallpox on the subway or anthrax attacks by mail-means the information contained in the guide has never been more valuable. Distinguished healthcare professional, educator, and bioterrorism expert Mary Theresa Urbano, PhD, has created a comprehensive and accessible guidebook for facing the terrifying reality of bioterrorism. Eleven chapters detail proper private and public preparations and precautions to combat the threat of bioterrorism. In addition to historical information about bioweapons and bioterrorism, Dr Urbano provides a general overview of disease that enriches her recommendations for responding to a bioterrorist attack. These are the insights of an experienced insider.
