48,500-year-old 'zombie virus' resurrected by scientists

By: April Carson

After being frozen under a Russian lake for 48,500 years, a "zombie virus" has been revived by French scientists.

The French scientist's act of reviving the zombie virus has caused panic among people, as reported by New York Post.

The New York Post has quoted a viral study that is yet to be peer-reviewed. The study warned that animal, plant or human diseases could spring up if an ancient virus was revived.

The fear of an ancient virus rising from the dead is not without basis. In 2018, a mysterious illness in Siberia was linked to a previously unknown virus that had been preserved in reindeer and was over 30,000 years old.

The preliminary report suggests that global warming has begun to thaw vast areas of permafrost - permanently frozen ground that covers a quarter of the Northern Hemisphere. This thawing effect has "released organic materials frozen for up to a million years" - germs included, which could be deadly.

The researchers revive cellular microbes and viruses that have been dormant since prehistoric times as part of their organic material.

One of these samples was a ‘zombie virus’, Pithovirus sibericum, that had been trapped in the Siberian permafrost for 48,500 years. Scientists were able to revive this ancient virus in a laboratory environment and study its genetic make-up.

Scientists have inexplicably revived "zombie viruses" from the Siberian permafrost, as stated by the New York Post. These animals were preserved in ice and are now reanimated--leading researchers to believe that these creatures may unveil new information about past epidemics.

Pandoravirus yedoma, the oldest of its kind, is 48,500 years old. This ancient virus has the potential to infect other creatures and breaks the previous record held by a 30,000-year-old virus found in Siberia. The discovery was made by scientists in 2013.

According to Science Alert, the new strain is one of 13 viruses that have been described in a recent study. Each of these viruses has its own unique genome.

The pandoravirus was discovered in Yukechi Alas, Yakutia, Russia at the bottom of a lake. However, others have been found in various other places such as mammoth fur and Siberian wolf intestines.

The virus is capable of infecting amoebas and has been called a 'zombie virus' due to its ability to remain dormant for thousands of years. As such, it can lay in wait until the right conditions present themselves before coming back to life.

New York Post reported that after scientists research live cultures, they discovered that all "zombie viruses" have the potential to be infectious and cause a health danger. They concluded that pandemics like Covid will become more common in the future as melting permafrost releases long-dormant viruses.

Given that an ancient virus could potentially come back to life and start infecting people when the permafrost thaws, it's rational to be concerned. It's important to remain vigilant and take the necessary steps to ensure that any dormant viruses don't get the chance to wreak havoc on global populations. This includes monitoring climate change, understanding our environment better, and researching ways to contain or eradicate potential threats.

The thawing of ice releases organic matter that decomposes into carbon dioxide and methane, which in turn accelerates the melt due to the greenhouse effect. This creates a vicious cycle as more melting leads to more release of these gases.

Additional research is needed to understand how quickly these viruses spread when exposed to light, heat, oxygen, and other environmental variables. It's also imperative to explore the potential health risks associated with these ancient viruses and how we can protect ourselves from them.
