      From Wikipedia - BiohazardRead Full From Wikipedia

      Biological hazards, also known as biohazards, refer to biological substances that pose a threat to the health of living organisms, primarily that of humans. This can include medical waste or samples of a microorganism, virus or toxin (from a biological source) that can affect human health. It can also include substances harmful to other animals.

      The term and its associated symbol are generally used as a warning, so that those potentially exposed to the substances will know to take precautions. The biohazard symbol was developed in 1966 by Charles Baldwin, an environmental-health engineer working for the Dow Chemical Company on the containment products.

      It is used in the labeling of biological materials that carry a significant health risk, including viral samples and used hypodermic needles.

      In Unicode, the biohazard symbol is U+2623 ().
