There are firm reports of responders going to rescue people becoming 
victims. However there are videos taken in locations some distance away 
from the impact site. People wearing little or no protective gear are 
seen handling the victims. Why are they not being seriously affected by 
Sarin? The simple answer is that these victims were affected by aerosol 
and/or vapour. Very little material actually got deposited on them. Even 
if it did, it would have been in the order of a few milligrams. And it 
takes 1700 milligrams over a period of time to kill someone by simple 
absorption. Responders aren’t falling over because, simply, the math 
doesn’t work and Sarin isn’t a magical substance.
