MOSCOW, March 12 (Itar-Tass) – RIA Novosti. Active thawing of permafrost on the Arctic coast of Russia can lead to the opening of old cattle cemeteries with anthrax, warns the Antistikhia Center.
“It’s good that they caught”. Expert on a possible catastrophe due to the melting of glaciers In the summer of 2016, high temperatures provoked a dangerous situation in the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug: “Against the backdrop of a large and prolonged temperature anomaly, thawing of the old cattle cemetery and, consequently, an outbreak of anthrax occurred.” According to “Antistikhia”, the daytime temperature in Yamal reached 34 degrees Celsius in that year. In Russia, more than one hundred thousand anthrax scotograms have been registered, including about 400 in the Arctic region. Disputes of the causative agent of the disease can persist in the soil for more than 50 years. This leads to the formation of persistent foci and creates a real threat of epizootics and epidemics.
Scientists note that anthrax is an extremely dangerous infectious disease that affects wild and domestic animals, as well as humans. The causative agent is considered as the main damaging agent of biological terrorism. So, in the USA in 2001 there were several cases of deliberate mailing an anthrax dispute by mail. As a result, five people were killed and 17 people were injured.
Giant viruses: which creatures are hiding in permafrost Global warming entails risks for other diseases. “The increase in temperatures in general increases the risk of infectious diseases, as the pathogens of many infections are activated precisely under warm weather conditions.” Climate warming promotes the displacement of the border of the spread of ticks, which is why people often became ill with tick-borne borreliosis and tick-borne encephalitis, ” a document available to RIA Novosti.
