Small scale anthrax attack
Estimated clean up cost US$1 billion.
Consequences of a large scale anthrax attack
• It is predicted that an attack against
a city of 11.5 million inhabitants with
2.2 pounds of anthrax would results
in 1.5 million infections.
• If drugs were only administered once
the first case had been diagnosed
123,000 of those infected would die.
If antibiotics are given pre attack the
number of deaths would be reduced
Consequence of an attack against D.C.
100 000 dead, 125 000 infected
Economic cost = $ 26 billion dollars
(Kaufmann et al.,1997)
