Alice Austen finds one of the virus distribution boxes, which have fake jumping cobras, while looking through Kate Moran's belongings. An identical box is found Harmonica Man's belongings.

Austen's Epiphany
While pondering the virus Austen realized that the Cobra virus contains the code for Lesch-Nyhan syndrome.

Possible Source of the Virus
Suspicious Biology Lab
Will Hopkins finds above images of a biology lab that has vents on the roof with filters that are rated for hot zone level four. The name of the company is Bio-Vek, Hopkins and Austen plan to have an interview with the head doctor, Dr. Heyert.

Other Acts of Bioterrorism
The city of Caffa was bombarded by the Tartars catapulting dead bodies infected with plague into the city. At the end of a 3 day siege the Tartars wanted to spread the disease to their enemies. During this time period there was almost no defense against the awful disease.
North America
Colonial America
When the British were trying to settle in the Americas the Native Americans were not willing to give up their land. In response to this the British gave blankets infected with small pox to the Native Americans in an effort to weaken the population. Trying to make peace with the British the Indians accepted the gift to show a bond between the two peoples.
Many people believe that the British gave their loyalists in the New World small pox so it could possibly be transferred to the US Continental Army. This was not proven to be true but it most likely did occur. This harsh strategy only worked in one circumstance.
Germany sent Anton Dilger to the United States to try and infect horses with Glanders before they were shipped to England. He targeted ship workers in Baltimore. He bribed the workers to infect the horses and the horses were sent to England although there were very small affects from the disease.
Quxian & Ning-hsien
Japan infected fleas with plague and let them go into two large Chinese cities. Japan also detonated 731 bombs within the two cities, each contained millions of plague infected fleas. This act of terrorism killed 120 people and the food and water supplies of Quxian & Ning-hsien were contaminated with B. anthracis, V. Cholera, Shigella spp., Salmonella and Yersinia pestis.

1930's and 1940's
A ricin-filled pellet was used in 1978 to assassinate Bulgarian dissident writer, Georgi Markov. Markov was not liked by the Bulgarian government who gave an umbrella gun to the Bulgarian secret police who then shot the poisonous bullet into the leg of Markov. Ricin is a naturally occurring toxin in the castor oil plant, a dose the size of a few grains of salt can kill an adult human.
The Dalles
An Indian religious cult in Oregon wanted to gain control of the county by killing everyone within it. The cult poisoned salad bars in the county with salmonella typhimanice. A total 751 cases were reported and 45 people were hospitalized with the sickness. The act of terrorism would have gone unnoticed until some of the members told the public about the attack after the cult fell apart.
Aum Shinrikyo
A radical Doomsday group tried to create their own theocratic state. To do this they tried to kill off a good portion of the population by using an aerosol form of anthrax, botulin toxin, Q fever agent and Ebola virus. There were ten attempts to distribute the biological weapons, thankfully none of them worked.
While the source or motive is unknown donuts and muffins were purposely contaminated with cultures of Shigella Dysenteriaea. 45 laboratory workers developed gastroenteritis after eating the donuts and muffins. The bacteria used to contaminate the foods was cultured inside the lab where the food was contaminated.
One week after the attacks on 9/11 there were multiple letters containing anthrax spores sent to news media offices and two senators. There were a total of 23 cases and 5 deaths. The source of these letters are still unknown.
