Scientists have discovered a virus in permafrost 

The virus Mollivirus sibericum is 0,6 micron long and it can be easily seen through light microscope. The discovery was made by French and Russian scientists and according to news agency TASS the virus has spent about 30 thousand years below ground. Inside the ice specialists found untouched specimens of DNA and this helped them to make some experiments however the scientists are afraid that there is a risk of awaking some other viruses like the one which has been found recently. The danger zones are arctic regions which are of the utmost interest among scientists because these regions have a lot of mineral wealth. “If we study these regions without proper care and start to industrialize them than we might awake viruses such as smallpox which is considered to be eradicated”, says Jean-Michel Clave the professor from French University.
