#Zombievirus trends after scientists uncover new virus from permafrost.

By Srimoyee Chowdhury: Just when everyone thought that the worst was over after the decrease in Coronavirus cases, a new virus has been unearthed by scientists that will refresh your nightmares. The virus (nicknamed as Zombie Virus) was found frozen under a lake more than 48,500 years ago from permafrost in the Siberia region of Russia. Now, we know what you are thinking – what was the need to go digging around such places that could bring more nuisances to humans? But we guess it’s a bit too late for that thought.

Anyway, dubbed as Pandoravirus Yedoma, this virus has been considered as the oldest one to be discovered. Now, netizens have made a beeline to express their opinions about the matter on Twitter. While some pointed out that the incident was probably a kickstart to the apocalyptic situation portrayed in Hollywood movies, others were convinced that Doomsday is upon us.

Many also pointed out that a similar kind of situation was shown in the popular cartoon series The Simpsons a few years ago. Another prediction proved right, it seems!

Well, we can’t undo the fact that danger of a possible virus outbreak is looming over us, but we surely can cheer you up with some memes:

Take a look:

Scientists have long warned that the thawing of permafrost due to global warming will worsen climate change by freeing previously trapped greenhouse gases like methane. But who knew that it was going to cause a much bigger problem? Keeping aside this Pandora’s Box situation, what do you think of the memes?
