A bioterrorism attack is the use of foreign bodies which are biological and dangerous as weapons to attack people; this can affect the whole population exposed to it. Bioterrorism is cheaper to be arranged since all the agents needed are easily found and inexpensive. An example of a bioterrorism attack is the attack of anthrax that attacked the US (Armengaud, 2017). When it spreads to the people, the government has to do something to cure and treat the patients to avoid the death of the citizens. When a bioterrorism attack happens, it tends to limit the civil liberties of the citizens. When people have a lot of freedom, it has to be regulated to avoid mistakes one can make.
