Study reveals ease of bioattack on airline industry

In a study on potential airline bioterrorism, RGF, in association with Kansas State University, has revealed that the release of a bioagent within a plane or airport terminal easily, potentially creating a pandemic.

The study says that terrorist would be able to use a small, hand-activated aspirator, which could easily be purchased at a drugstore or be made from an over the counter nasal spray bottle, to release a virus on an plane, in a terminal or in any commercial building.

The terrorist, the study contends, would simply have to place the virus with the aspirator and release it in the intended area, leaving no one the wiser until they had traveled and spread the virus, leading to a worldwide pandemic.

The solution, RGF says, is to kill the virus before it can reach another person. The study says that advanced oxidation technology could potentially kill an airborne virus. China, during the recent SARS scare, used such technology on its city buses and subways to kill the airborne virus.

RGF's own oxidation technology has shown that a kill rate of 88 percent for viruses in the air can be achieved at three feet, eliminating a host of viruses and stopping a potential bioterror threat and subsequent worldwide pandemic.
