There Are Diseases Hidden In Ice And They Are Waking Up

In light of the recent unfolding global crisis I found myself wondering why now? A recent presentation by Dr Eric Berg  discussed how the Spanish Flu pandemic at the very end of the First World War may have been so severe because of the poor state of health of the population at that time following four years of fighting in grueling conditions and a limited supply of staple foods. This led me to research the effects of global warming on bacteria and viruses. 

Normally, I would take any online social media-style click bait with a pinch of salt but this article I discovered was on the BBC Earth website from 2017 that posed the question…
“What would happen if we were suddenly exposed to deadly bacteria and viruses that have been absent for thousands of years, or that we have never met before?”
