Suppose as the bioterrorist I fly to Cairo, sabotage a research station there, then move out. Obviously I have to reveal that I was spotted in the Cairo airport and that the research station was removed.

Do I have to reveal the order those things happened in, or do I just say that these things happened on my turn? I would like the players to think there's a possibility that I flew out of Cairo after sabotaging the station and could be anywhere now.

You can't change the order of the actions. When you use the Cairo card to fly to Cairo, it enters the discard. The players immediately know you used the Cairo airport. Then you spent another card to sabotage the research station.
They know that you used the Cairo airport before doing the sabotage because the Cairo card was discarded first. The actions during your turn happen sequentially, not simultaneously.

The sample BIO-Terrorist turn makes it clear that the players are aware of the state of the board after each action that the Bio-Terrorist takes.

Remember that if you take a hidden action, and it's undetectable, you don't have to reveal if you took one or two hidden actions, but do have to reveal changes of board state in the order that they occur.
