Federal government purchases two million doses of smallpox drug in preparation for bioterrorism attackSubmitted by legalizeliberty on Tue, 03/19/2013 - 17:15
(NaturalNews) First it was millions of servings of long-term storable food. Then it was billions of rounds of high-powered ammunition and thousands of tank-like armored vehicles. Now the occupying powers of the U.S. federal government are stockpiling millions of doses of smallpox medication in alleged preparation for a potential "bioterrorism attack," according to The New York Times (NYT).
Even though smallpox was supposedly eradicated back in 1980, with the only known remaining virus currently being held in government-owned laboratories, Big Brother has contracted with Siga Technologies, a small vaccine and antiviral drug company, to produce two million doses of an antiviral drug known as Arestvyr, which is administered following a viral infection.
The $463 million order, which was made by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), is allegedly enough to contain a smallpox outbreak in a large American city, according to Robin Robinson, Director of the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA).
