Pulmonary form causes productive cough, hemoptysis, weight loss, pleuritic chest pain, low-grade fever, dyspnea, and CXR findings of pulmonary infiltrates, nodules, and/or cavitations. Hilar adenopathy may also be present. 30–45 days Coccidioidomycosis 7–21 days (Coccidioides immitis) see page 52 Fever, dry cough, dyspnea, chest pain, and fatigue.

This would allow for the identification of weaknesses and needs and aid in the prior identification of available resources, even at some distance away. These preparations alone would go a long way toward lessening the effectiveness of any biological weapon that might be used.
