Biological attacks are purposeful releases of germs and other viral or bacterial substances. There may be few or no warning signs before an attack. The most common sign of this attack is when health care workers notice that a larger than normal group of individuals come in with the same symptoms.
Viral Biological Weapons:
Require a host for them to live. Once infected, there is no cure, only the symptoms can be treated.
Bacterial Biological Weapons:
Weapons that are capable of multiplying and surviving on their own. They can be treated with antibiotics if caught early enough.
