Next Pandemic May Come From Super Bacteria Unleashed by Melting Permafrost

Newsweek says that scientists in Antarctica have uncovered “superpower” germs that might cause a pandemic. Climate change might defrost the ice reserve, releasing super germs. The bacteria’s built-in antibiotic resistance might make conventional therapies ineffectual. Chilean researchers discovered the germs while studying how climate change will effect their spread. Researchers cautioned...
