Just to throw a really nasty idea in.
A few years ago, some researchers working with the mousepox virus, which makes mice sick but rarely kills them, inserted a gene that boosted its impact. The new GM mousepox virus now is highly infectious, and kills mice with 100% certainty in quite a short time.
But the USA and Russia have stocks of human smallpox, and both are known to carry out germ warfare research, and both use GM techniques .....
