Melting Arctic permafrost: A looming threat of ‘zombie viruses’ emergence.

The bizarre pandemic threat arising from melting Arctic permafrost involves the potential release of ‘zombie viruses.’ As per a report by The Guardian, scientists warn that the thawing permafrost could unleash ancient viruses and bacteria preserved in the ice for centuries. This could lead to the emergence of infectious agents that modern humans have little to no immunity against, potentially causing a major disease outbreak. The concern is that these ‘zombie viruses’ could trigger a new global medical emergency, necessitating rapid response strategies and heightened surveillance to mitigate the risks associated with the release of ancient pathogens from the melting Arctic permafrost.
