It is also quite clear that COVID19 is also a Bio weapon. France, under a 2004 accord, helped to set up China's first P4 lab in Wuhan. And the US funded dangerous research there on manipulating bat corona viruses despite risk of an accidental release triggering a pandemic. Now the chickens have come home to roost.
How should Russia prepare against such acts of Bio terrorism given that the West considers Russia to be its Number 1 enemy and will certainly back such bio attacks against innocent Russians on Russian soil?
There are several ways that Russia can prepare for biowarfare.
Several ways are:
I think the number one thing is to have a strong attack, this will make countries think twice before attacking Russia. Russia needs to have a very strong bio program, where if Russia is attacked with bio weapons, Russia can respond to the attacking nation with the bio weapons. If you want peace, prepare for war.
I think the second most important thing is to have young people in colleges and university's studying to become doctors, experts in all kinds of health related issues, nurses and support staff. If Russia has young people going to colleges and university's studying all those things, than you have doctors, experts, nurses that are graduating every year and Russia has a good pool of educated young people joining the workforce.
Russia should spend a lot to study bio weapons and have companies that respond to it if needed. Have companies inside Russia studying and making vaccines(Russia should work to get 3-4 companies working and studying making vaccines, when you multiple companies, companies can share knowledge), have companies inside Russia making protective equipment for use, gloves, masks, hand sanitizer and other medical related equipment(even the most advanced medical equipment), this all needs to be done in Russia.)
Russia should work to upgrade it's health care system, modernize the hospitals, renovate older hospitals and get them up to date with the modern hospitals. Russia should work hard to improve the numbers of hospitals and hospital beds and try to get medical care to Russians all over the country, Russians in every corner of the country need to have access to medical care if needed.
Russia is blessed with a big country and with a big country comes big responsibilities. Russia needs to have programs where doctors in rural parts of Russia can talk face to face on computers with experts from other parts of the country or anywhere from the world. Russia also needs to have mobile services and the facilities ready to go in other parts of the country, where doctors, experts and equipment can be moved in hours if needed.
Russia needs to have tv programs in place that can educate citizens about the viruses or diseases in Russia and around the world. The citizens can than have a good knowledge on how to deal with viruses and diseases that may come. These tv programs need to be 100% accurate and no BS.
Most of these things are happening and there are some thing I did not mention need to happen but Russia has to be ready for biowarfare because that is where the US and NATO is headed. Russia needs to be ready.
