Hide Description
Please review the Biological Incident Annex—FEMA at https://www.fema.gov/pdf/emergency/nrf/nrf_BiologicalIncidentAnnex.pdf

Especially the following:

“The introduction of biological agents, both natural and deliberate, is often first detected through clinical or hospital presentation. However, there are other methods of detection, including environmental surveillance technologies such as BioWatch, and medical and syndromic surveillance systems. Early detection of biological agents offers an opportunity to take proactive measures to mitigate the consequences of disease outbreak.

“Routine fish and wildlife health and disease surveillance, including investigation of wildlife mortality events conducted on public lands and in public laboratories, provides the opportunity for early detection of biological agents and acts of bioterrorism. Animal health surveillance in the agriculture sector provides similar opportunities” (Biological Incident Annex, 2008, pp. 4-5).

As a policy-maker, what would you propose as a national strategy to improve early detection of bioterrorism? Remember the anthrax outbreak of 2001.
