"The risks of accidental exposure to traditional Kool-Aid are low--it must be dissolved in a liquid delivery vehicle, such as hot or cold water, and ingested.

"Far more dangerous is the so-called weaponized form Kool-Aid used by the Bush administration and others. In this form, the infection is airborne and spreads far more easily. The slightest waft of hot air can be enough to spread infection for miles."
