Arctic WARNING: North pole ‘ticking TIME BOMB’ of deadly disease

Parvati Foundation’s founder and CEO, Canadian musician and author Parvati, said: “COVID-19 is an urgent reminder of the ways we are all interconnected. What each of us does affects everyone else.

“We must heed the wake-up call to protect our collective future with MAPS now.”

Research published in January stated that a team of scientists from the US and China drilled 50 metres into a Tibetan glacier to gather samples of Earth’s oldest glacial ice.

By drilling 50 metres below the surface, researchers were able to collect samples of ice which offer a glimpse into Earth’s viral history.

The team uncovered 28 ancient viruses in the 15,000-year-old ice which were previously unknown to scientists.
