Intentionally infecting others with coronavirus may be terrorism – The Jerusalem Post

Amid the worsening coronavirus outbreak in the US, Deputy Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen warned officials in a Department of Justice memo that they may encounter threats against individuals or the general public or even purposeful infection of others with the coronavirus and that such threats and actions may be considered terrorism.
“Because coronavirus appears to meet the statutory definition of a ‘biological agent’…such acts potentially could implicate the nation’s terrorism-related statutes,” wrote Rosen, referencing statutes on the “development/possession of a biological agent for use as a weapon,” “threats by mail” and “false information and hoaxes regarding biological weapons.”
