Budget Cuts Putting Biohazards Response at Risk

Pay some heed to what’s happening on the bioterror security front. CNN is reporting that “recent and proposed budget cuts at all levels of government are threatening to reverse the significant post-9/11 improvements in the nation’s ability to respond to natural diseases and bioterror attacks.”

That ominous advisory is based on a report, “Ready or Not? Protecting the Public’s Health From Diseases, Disasters, and Bioterrorism 2011” from the Trust for America’s Health. Sounds like it needs to be required reading by security officials.

The report is available in PDF format from a link in CNN’s report.
