Bio-Terrorism Could Kill Tens Of Millions

Bio-Terrorism Could Kill Tens Of Millions.

In the midst of the Munich Security Conference (February 17 to 19, 2017), Bill Gates warned that bio-terrorism may be the next healthcare scourge, if international and national security agencies became too relaxed in their vigilance. It is not totally a figment of his imagination, as we know that terrorists have been attempting to secure deadly viruses and bacteria in the international black market, and had also been developing some form of biological weapons or a dirty nuclear device. Without being too pessimistic, perhaps it is only a matter of time before we see some form of bio-terrorism becoming a reality.

Over the past five decades, the Munich Security Conference has become the major global forum for the discussion of security policy. Each February, it brings together more than 450 senior decision-makers from around the world, including heads-of-state, ministers, leading personalities of international and non-governmental organisations, as well as high ranking representatives of industry, media, academia, and civil society, to engage in an intensive debate on current and future security challenges.
