    Yes, you can be poisoned with Novichok and survive

    The widely publicised attack on Sergei and Yulia Skripal in Salisbury in March 2018 certainly did a lot to bring chemical warfare agents, particularly nerve agents, into the public consciousness in the UK and elsewhere.

Chemical weapons expert Dan Kaszeta explains the various factors that show it is entirely realistic for the deadly nerve agent to still have been potent enough to kill four months later.
