    In general, chemical warfare is better understood than biological warfare, and defensive measures for chemical warfare are more mature (largely because of the use of CW in World War I and the years of development of both offensive and defensive capability since then; biological warfare was not as seriously studied until World War II). The novel coronavirus is not an ideal biological warfare agent, experts say, because its impact on the United States and adversaries alike cannot be controlled. But China refuses to help the world.

    These organisms are potential biological agents because of their lethality, high infectivity by the aerosol route shown in animal models, and possibility for replication in tissue culture. In summary, we know that biological pathogens have been used for biological warfare and terrorism, and their potential for future use is a major concern. The international community banned the use of chemical and biological weapons after World War 1 and reinforced the ban in and by prohibiting their development, stockpiling and transfer. Advances in science and technology raise concerns that restraints on .

    Taking into account the types of events listed in the prologue, this assessment of the chemical and biological threat to naval forces derives from the following principal factors: Today, chemical and biological weapons and/or weapons development programs can be found worldwide in every region where the possibility of interstate war exists. The ASM Archives has for some years been collecting materials relating to the scientific and policy aspects of biological warfare. The Center for the History of Microbiology/ASM Archives (CHOMA) Committee is investigating the possibility of expanding this collection in the coming : Karen Yee.
