The paper presents epidemiological threats involving viral infections, particularly of the respiratory system, due to natural processes or bioterrorist attack. Influenza viruses and viral hemorrhagic fevers are of special importance. Present epidemiological threats to Poland have also been considered. Effectiveness of prevention and treatment of viral diseases is limited. Open country borders, more and more common arrivals of foreigners pose a risk of emerging tropical diseases. Thus changes in doctor training and organization aiming at reducing potential sanitary losses are necessary.

Key words: respiratory tract infections, bioterrorist threats, emerging diseases, influenza viruses, viral hemorrhagic fevers
