I can't emphasize enough that this is not something we just started on September 11th , said Dan Drociuk , bioterrorism coordinator at the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control.We've been working on planning and logistical issues for at least two years.This might have taken us unaware , but not unprepared..Still , Drociuk acknowledged , exercises can't replace the experience of dealing with a threat that could be real.We're learning something new every day as far as how to handle this , he said.It never prepares you for the real thing , but you're a heckuva lot more able to deal with it than if you go in cold..One area that has been shored up , Drociuk said , is communication between state health officials and doctors who might encounter problems.We're still educating physicians and hospitals as far as protocols and procedures , he said.In addition to that , it's a matter of just acting as the situation warrants..

said.So if a patient has acute respiratory infection and flu-like symptoms , the doctor suspects cold or flu -- the horse.But that might not be the case , anthrax may be the zebra , he
Detection is made more difficult because the anthrax cases are occurring during flu season.
If this happened during the summer , it might be easier to differentiate , Hester said.
Although the threat of anthrax in South Carolina is real , it should remain rare.Anthrax is not contagious , nor is it easily spread.
