FBI Reports Extremist Groups Encouraging Intentional Infection

According to the FBI, white supremacists, neo-Nazis and other extremist groups are encouraging followers infected with the coronavirus to purposely infect members of law enforcement, Jewish people, and people of color. The FBI’s New York office sent an alert to local police departments warning of the extremist groups advocating members to use spray bottles to spread infectious fluids to those in the targeted groups in areas where they might congregate, such as “markets, political offices, businesses and places of worship.”

The FBI reported that “White Racially Motivated Violent Extremists” view spreading the virus as an “obligation” they can fulfill by spreading bodily fluids on door handles and elevator buttons, particularly in areas which would affect law enforcement, and Jewish or non-white communities.
