Virus as a biological-weapon

Abstract

Masthan K.M.K, Shanmugam K.T, Aravindha Babu N and Tathagata Bhattacharjee

Bio- weapons are the use of living and modified biological agents to cause disease as well as destroy a mass population. Attempts of using virus as biological warfare agent date back to antiquity. Though numerous viruses can be weaponised yet the horror and misery caused by small pox or haemorrhagic fever are difficult to imagine. To detect the causative organisms and protect our civilization public health infrastructure need to be strengthened.
