Bio-Terrorism: Introduction (01:36)
The CDC has identified anthrax, botulism, plague, smallpox, tularemia, and viral hemorrhagic fever as high priority biological diseases. This program will cover symptoms, transmission modes, and treatment measures for each disease.
The spores originate in animals or animal products. Learn about cutaneous, inhalation, and gastrointestinal transmission routes; incubation periods; symptoms; and treatment protocols.
Clostridium botulinum bacteria form spores that exist naturally in soil. Learn about food-borne and inhalation transmission routes, incubation periods, symptoms, and treatment protocols.
Infected fleas carry the gram-negative Yersinia pestis bacterium. Learn about flea and pulmonary transmission routes, incubation periods, symptoms, and treatment protocols.
The variola virus has been eliminated, except for laboratory stockpiles. Learn about the incubation period, symptoms, transmission routes, and supportive therapies.
The bacterial zoonosis is caused by the highly contagious Francisella tularensis bacterium. Learn about inoculation and inhalation transmission routes, incubation periods, symptoms, and treatment protocols.
