Trope Update: Decontamination Chamber

Original trope here; a comment left on the original posting of it was: “What’s happened to people who try to claim that those microbes are weapons?”

I reply thus:

“A weaponized microbe in an appropriate warhead or containment packaging is freight.”

“A weaponized microbe in your gut/skin/breath/etc., on the other hand, is an act of biological or ecological warfare, and therefore an act of war or terrorism. ¬†Your confession is appreciated.”
