Abstract

Pakistan is internationally very important geostrategic and geopolitical country, unique in its cultural and religious sensitivity, has low socio-economic status, low literacy rate, high gender biasness and has been prone to disasters, both natural and man-made.1 The country’s geographical boundaries historically exposed it to general security risks, including the biosecurity threats. In order to ensure maximum defense against biosecurity threats, a system of bio-preparedness is a pre-requisite. We have witnessed during COVID-19 pandemic that the biohazards, whether man-made or natural, know no boundaries and the spread of contagion across the global is a matter of days. Therefore, being prepared is pertinent for the national security as well as for the safety of global population.
