- They warn of the appearance of diseases due to global warming
- This statement is made in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic in the world
- They say there are ‘frozen’ viruses that could be very harmful to humans
To better explain what could happen if climate change does not stop, an expert on the subject speaks verbatim about it and warns of catastrophes natural.
“Beneath the permafrost there is a whole biological diversity that thousands of years ago was trapped by ice. There are viruses that can endure in this state of hibernation for about 30 thousand years. The threat is twofold. First, because we do not know what we are facing, although there is evidence that there are thousands of frozen viruses ”.
He added: “And secondly, we are not prepared at the level of immunity to face this type of virus, because our genetic registry does not have proof of them and we could be very vulnerable”, explained Maxime Renaudin, founder of the environmental organization Tree- Nation.
Then he did not hesitate to issue a danger warning: “Probably the vast majority of these viruses would not be harmful. But it only takes a small percentage of lethal viruses to pose a big problem for humanity. “
And he concluded: “These pathogens would keep their contagion potential intact from the moment they hibernate. When they are activated again, they would be as in the first day “, says the expert.
Those viruses or diseases that could cause overheating appear to be hibernating in permafrost, a frozen layer of soil in the arctic areas of Alaska, Siberia and Canada.
He also points out that known and unknown viruses can exist under that ice layer, which could be very harmful to health.
