You normally wouldn't have somebody use an example for security, "even X requires quite a bit of security" if it wasn't a small matter. Obviously a serious disease/virus/plague should have serious security. I wasn't saying anything bad =P so don't think I was trying to correct you. I'm sure you understand travesty of the situation, just the average reader might take that as smallpox being not a big thing. When that's far from the truth, it's quite scary when you use it tactically.

He didn't seem to be implying Smallpox was a small thing. Seems like he was stating that biological threats below the security levels of Smallpox are locked down tighter than a faithful nuns virginity. That even smaller biological threats, not Smallpox, have a very high security lockdown.

 

His statement actually makes it pretty clear just how dangerous Smallpox is if they have such high levels of security for lesser biological threats.

Description: Human infection with arenaviruses is incidental to the natural cycle of the viruses and occurs when an individual comes into contact with the excretions or materials contaminated with the excretions of an infected rodent, such as ingestion of contaminated food, or by direct contact of abraded or broken skin with rodent excrement. Infection can also occur by inhalation of tiny particles soiled with rodent urine or saliva (aerosol transmission). The types of incidental contact depend on the habits of both humans and rodents. For example, where the infected rodent species prefers a field habitat, human infection is associated with agricultural work. In areas where the habitat of the rodent species includes human homes or other buildings, infection occurs in domestic settings

So basically, don't eat rat poop, or in the hands of a terrorist, food contaminated with this. Of course, if a terrorist wanted to poison food to kill people, there are much more deadly, and readily available poisons that could be used.

Compared to airborne agents, VHF isn't what most people would use to kill people on a large scale.

Well if to kill a zombie you need to disable the brain...

I'll take guns over broomsticks. Lol.
