Biological threats will always be around. Global warming is releasing germs that have long been frozen and we have not yet been exposed to them. We have no immunity. The native Americans populations were annihilated by the introduction of European diseases like smallpox.
Antibiotics are abused in factory farms to keep the animal victims alive in the filthiest of conditions. This is an excellent breeding ground for antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
Our civilization is totally reliant on computers. If a pandemic breaks out that can kill off a very high percentage of computer operators and programmers. Civilization as we know it could end with food distribution collapsed and power out.
