Buried under the ice in Antarctica, Alaska and the Siberian permafrost is the potential for a global epidemic of ancient disease, in the form of bacteria and viruses from thousands or even millions of years ago.In this video I delve into the wealth of research on this topic of permafrosts, together we will discover exactly what a permafrost is, where they are and what the consequences that come with their thawing out will be. We know that there is frozen bacteria and viruses in the permafrost soil, but could there be something much more sinister?Could the deadly infections of the 18th and 19th century also be laying dormant, waiting to strike humanity once again? Is it dangerous that the Russian city of Yakutsk resides on top of a permafrost? Have researchers already discovered deadly ancient frozen diseases?All this and more will be revealed in this episode of Wiser.
