HISTORY AND POTENTIAL AS BIOLOGICAL WEAPONS
Hemorrhagic fever viruses have been weaponized by the former Soviet Union, Russia, and the United States. 13-15 There are reports that yellow fever may have been weaponized by North Korea. 14 The former Soviet Union and Russia pro- duced large quantities of Marburg, Ebola, Lassa, and New World arenaviruses (spe- cifically, Junin and Machupo) until 1992. 13,15 Soviet Union researchers quan- tified the aerosol infectivity of Marburg virus for monkeys, determining that no more than a few virions are required to cause infection. 16 Yellow fever and Rift Valley fever viruses were developed as weapons by the US offensive biological weapons program prior to its termination in 1969. 14 The Japanese terrorist cult Aum Shinrikyo unsuccessfully at- tempted to obtain Ebola virus as part of an effort to create biological weapons. 17

Direct contact with infected blood and bodily fluids has accounted for the majority of person-to-person transmis- sion of filoviruses and arenaviruses...

Airborne transmission of HFVs appears to be a rare event but cannot be conclusively excluded. Given the inability to completely exclude this potential, the lack of preventive vaccines, and, in the case of filoviruses, the lack of effective drug therapy, we recommend that in addition to VHF-specific barrier pre- cautions, airborne precautions also be instituted.
