#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. Experts call the risks associated with the reactivation of microorganisms that have survived in the permafrost one of the dangerous consequences of climate change in the Arctic zone. And it can have an impact on humans and animals in the region.
Experts believe that in order to minimize risks, it is necessary to organize measures for state sanitary and epidemiological surveillance of areas where the climate change impact is high. In addition, it is important to educate and prepare physicians, raise the level of public awareness and understanding of the problems among departments at the federal and regional levels.
Previously, scientists found oil-eating bacteria in the Arctic, as well as an alternative to antibiotics. We also reported that Siberian scientists proposed a method for restoring Arctic lakes.
