A group of scientists from Europe has brought the 48,500-year-old “zombie” virus back to life from the Russian Siberian tundra. Internet users are now terrified that it is genuine and has the power to transform people into the walking dead.
In order to understand the effects of the zombie virus on human health, Jean-Michel Claverie and his associates at Aix-Marseille University in France undertook the study.
People are getting the chills at the constant Twitter debate about whether the recently revived virus is real or false as if the irrational dread of a potential zombie apocalypse wasn’t enough.
Zombie-Virus-Real”>is the ‘Zombie’ Virus Real?
Yes, the alleged zombie virus is real, but not in the way that most people believe.
Due to its capacity to endure harsh environments, the old virus and its strains have existed for years. These exclusively infect amoeba, thus they do not directly threaten people.
According to Jean, a professor of genomics and bioinformatics at the School of Medicine at the University of Aix-Marseille and the director of the Mediterranean Institute of Microbiology, “Such viruses will never infect a human cell because the evolution of human cells from amoeba is close to a billion years apart.”
He went on to say that these viruses are unable to infect people because of the various ways that human cells and amoeba cells differ from one another in how they function.
The Notion of A Zombie outbreak Is Fake
Call it the influence of The Walking Dead or other works of literature with a similar theme, but for many people, the idea of the dead coming back to life is their greatest fear.
Many people believed that human zombies were involved when they first heard of the zombie virus’s resurgence. Thus, the debates on Twitter about whether the virus is real or fake started, all in the name of personal happiness.
By writing, “The zombie virus doesn’t actually turn living things into zombies,” one Twitter user was able to calm others concerned.
Another said, “Now that this virus is here, the dead will come back to life, zombie apocalypse.”
Apocalypse Isn’t Starting in China in 2022
Similar uncertainty about a potential zombie apocalypse in China became a trend on TikTok a few months ago when many people started to think that there will be an epidemic of the living dead in 2022.
We can certify that the aforementioned would never occur with less than a month left in the year, and also because the worry was based on a misread article.
The novella makes homage to Max Brooks’ novel World War Z, which details the imagined Zombie World War. Those who didn’t read the narrative all the way through assumed it was about an actual zombie invasion of China.
For the time being, the only places where we can see zombies or experience the end of the world are in fiction.
