On 18 December 2020 BBC News reported:
Smoke from wildfires could be a surprising new route for the spread of infections, according to research. Scientist say that microbes and fungi can survive in large numbers in smoky plumes. The authors believe it's likely that organisms from the soil, known to cause infection, could be transferred in this way. They argue that greater monitoring of wildfire smoke by health authorities is urgently needed. ... Using new techniques to capture microbes in smoke, researchers say that they found over 900 different types of bacteria and around 100 unique fungi.
Global Good News service views this news as the failure of modern science and health systems.
Such 'flops' highlight the need for more intelligent, evolutionary, Natural Law based, life-supporting systems.
... Using new techniques to capture microbes in smoke, researchers say that they found over 900 different types of bacteria and around 100 unique fungi.
'The diversity of microbes we have found so far in the very few studies that have been done is impressive,' said Dr Leda Kobziar, from the University of Idaho, US, who led the review.
... The researchers believe that the microbes hitch-hike on particulate matter in the smoke. ... the ability of smoke to travel around the world suggests that it could be a 'missing link' in explaining some patterns of infection.
