Anthrax spores are tasteless, odorless, and invisible.

Early symptoms of inhaled anthrax resemble the common cold or flu.

    Symptoms are sore throat, mild fever, muscle aches, and/or tiredness.

    In early cases, your medic or physician may not suspect anthrax and
    mistakenly treat you for a cold or flu.

You may not know you are infected with anthrax until it’s too late.

    It only takes 1 to 6 days after exposure for anthrax symptoms to develop.

    Inhalational anthrax progresses very rapidly, and can kill within a day or two after initial symptoms appear.

    If not treated immediately and aggressively in a state-of-art hospital center, once severe symptoms develop, 45% to 80% of patients could die.
