What are the Bio Pathogens
What is mostmilitary effective and the least effective and why
- most viruses
- it can past filters and spreads fast
- least fungi
- slow to spread and effects plant live
- spray generators
- covert operations
- pre-emptive strike
- •DCA works with the XO
- –hygiene &sanitation

- –Immunizations Vaccines/antidotes not expired
- •Don Individual Protection
- •Shipboard Protective Measures
- –Circle William
- •Decontaminate Personnel (showers)
- •Decontaminate the Ship
- –HTH primary

- –Unopened (if possible)
- •Decontaminate Water
- •Quarantine Potentially Exposed Personnel
Bio Spread rate
150nm @ 10nm winds
Infectious Biological Agents
- Low agent concentrations required
- Delayed effects
- Difficult to detect
- Easy to produce
- Do not destroy material
- Highly weather dependent

RPM chap. 7
Finely divided particles of liquids or solids that are suspended in air, and which behave as a gas.
An agent that can enter the body through unbroken skin or injure the skin directly. (aka skin hazard)
measure of how readily an agent evaporates
the ability of a pathogen to be transferred from one individual to another within a target population.
the period of time required for the pathogens to establish themselves in the body of the host and to produce disease symptoms.
The ability of infectious agents to live and remain a hazard in the environment. (how long the agent can stay and still hurt people)
The ability of infectious agents to permeate (penetrate) and remain present throughout an area or a population due to their small size.
The separation of a potentially exposed group in order to limit the area exposure of an infectious agent.
The relative ability of infectious agents to produce disease. (The more viral, the more deadly because there will be shorter incubation time and more pervasive.)
