The correct answer to this question is yes. Unfortunately, anthrax can kill people. Before it kills the patient, the patient will have a number of symptoms and complications. Some of those complications include inflammation on the body, which is a result of a buildup of fluid.

The membranes of the spinal cord and brain could also be covered with fluids, which can lead to hemorrhagic meningitis. This condition is when a person loses a large amount of blood and will lead to the patient dying. Some early symptoms that anthrax can cause is a sore throat or pain in the muscles.
