The population of the Earth will not die out from the "Armageddon virus", the scientist said

RIA NewsHumanity should not be afraid of the appearance of a deadly "Armageddon virus", which will allegedly destroy the Earth's population, since we are talking about a virus that has long been known to science and is not associated with high contagion, says Alexey Zaberezhny, head of the Laboratory of Applied Virology and Biotechnology of the Ivanovsky Institute of Virology of the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences.

Earlier, information appeared in the British media that British doctors had discovered a virus unknown to science that causes Crimean-Congolese viral hemorrhagic fever in people, from which several people have recently died in this country. According to experts referred to by the publications, this virus can allegedly practically destroy humanity in five years.

"This virus has been known since the middle of the last century. This is a virus that humanity is not fighting due to low incidence (morbidity – ed.) and mortality (from it)," Zaberezhny told RIA Novosti.

According to the scientist, several cases of British cases of Congo-Crimean hemorrhagic fever led to panic statements, because local specialists were "simply not ready for such a situation psychologically."

Congo-Crimean hemorrhagic fever is a viral natural focal human disease, the causative agent of which is transmitted by ticks. This disease is common in most countries of sub-Saharan Africa (Congo, Kenya, Uganda, Nigeria), in Central Asia, China, and is observed in southern Russia.
