This Could Trigger The Next Pandemic, Experts Say

After a few years of covid pandemic, the word is triggering nightmares when we hear it – pandemic. But it seems that the next one could be closer than you think. Here’s what could trigger it, according to the latest reports.

This could trigger a new pandemic

It’s been just revealed that according to recent evidence, the next pandemic may result from melting glaciers. An analysis of an Arctic Lake showed that frozen viruses and bacteria might thaw out and infect animals.

Nature World News notes that according to recent information, the next pandemic may be caused by melting ice rather than bats or birds.

“A virus infecting a new host for the first time may be more likely to occur close to melting glaciers, according to genetic analyses of soil and lake sediments from Lake Hazen, the biggest high Arctic freshwater lake in the world.”

The same notes also revealed the fact that the reports are saying that it is increasingly probable that viruses and bacteria dormant in glaciers and permafrost would reawaken and infect nearby species.

This could reportedly happen when global temperatures increase due to climate change, especially if their ranges move closer to the poles. Check out the original reports in order to learn more details about this. 

The study was reported in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B.

Pandemic in the news
