Tension everywhere due to 48,500 year old virus, how big a threat is this to India and the world?

There has been a threat of some new virus all over the world for the last few years. Many viruses like Corona, Monkeypox have been seen in the last few years. Now the threat of zombie virus is looming all over the world. Scientists have issued a warning regarding this virus. Let us know about zombie virus.

The threat of Corona virus is still not completely over across the world. Meanwhile, the risk of a several thousand years old virus emerging again has increased. Scientists have issued a warning about the re-emergence of the zombie virus buried in the Arctic ice for thousands of years. Scientists have said that Arctic ice has been melting for the last few years. In such a situation, zombie viruses can come out. If this virus comes out then it can become a big threat to the whole world. Since the temperature is increasing and snow is melting due to global warming in the last few years, there is a risk of the virus coming out. Scientists had taken samples a few years ago. Its research has revealed that the viruses present in the Arctic ice have been stored under the ice for several thousand years.

48,500 year old virus

Jean Michel, a scientist at Aix-Marseille University, says that if such viruses spread among humans, it could pose a great danger. Last year, a study related to this virus was published, in which many types of virus samples were taken from Siberian areas. In which it was revealed that a virus is about 48,500 years old. It was called zombie virus. Scientists have expressed concern that this virus may come out due to melting of snow. Scientists had said that if zombie viruses stored in ice for 48,500 years come out, there could be a risk of infection. There is a risk of a new epidemic coming due to this.

Arctic monitoring network being built

Zombie viruses have been buried underground for several thousand years, but due to global warming there is a danger of their coming out. There can be a risk if the virus comes out. In view of this increasing threat, scientists have planned to establish an Arctic monitoring network. With this, the spread of zombie virus will be detected at the initial stage itself. This will prevent the virus.

Is there a threat to the world?

Epidemiologist Dr. Ajay Kumar says that genome sequencing of different viruses has increased in the last few years. For this reason, information about some new and old viruses is being received. It is also a matter of concern that snow is melting in many areas and if any virus is present there then it can spread. There are many viruses which have been present for thousands of years, but they are not active. Or their firepower has been exhausted. In such a situation, nothing can be said clearly about zombie virus yet.

At present, it is necessary that the infection of this type of virus should be prevented and no sample of the virus should be tampered with. If there is any research on this, then there remains a risk of the virus spreading.
