    Who studied what, as they say. Everyone is called upon to do their work and a lot depends on how well it will be done. Praise and honor to guys.

      Well done, of course. But you still need to find out where it came from there. Once upon a time, I don’t remember the year, the media claimed that in Novosibirsk, an American spy was detained at a bus stop, spraying the anthrax virus in the early morning, before a crowd crushed to work.

      Well done, they worked perfectly and you need to analyze - where did this infection come from.

    Maybe I’m naive, but I would like to say the following: there are no outbreaks of such things from scratch. I would not want to talk about conspiracy theories-tricks, but as if this crap was not thrown to us from behind the hill. In the tundra, such foci can be least expected.

      They say that from the warming of permafrost the old hearth has given up. Although, somehow I hardly believe it.
      And the guys turned out to actually combat the consequences of the use of biological weapons

      Do not guess. The anthrax is so called because before the revolution whole camps with thousand herds of deer died out there. And there are plenty of burial grounds.
      The permafrost is melting, and deer are very fond of eating bones.

      Yes, already discussed at.
      It makes sense to plant them - it’s expensive and useless 0. There are hell of natural foci, to import and import the infection to the Americans, so that at least some prominent contribution could be made.

    Thanks to the personnel and everyone who participated in the elimination of the outbreak. But the local authorities need not only a-i-ay and a-ta-ta. They are responsible for the prevention of occurrence and spread.

      This is so, but they are not responsible for the weather. Due to the abnormally high temperatures in this region, this infection began to crawl out, including and from old burial grounds. And the guys are certainly well done.

        The condition of cattle cemeteries should be monitored constantly. Regardless of weather conditions. And the hot weather was in 2010. However, there was no flash.

    And the saddest thing is that this is not the end. How many mattresses have created viruses, then chicken, then pig. The whole struggle is yet to come.

      These have nothing to do with it - nature itself creates viruses.

    The brother on Yamal pumps gas, the boss is big, he calls everything to himself. I can’t make up my mind, I have cherries in, and he has -5 degrees there, weaned from the cold.
    I did not report anything about this muck, I looked at the map, so it is to the south. .

    The most important thing was done on time and did not regret the funds. As far as I know, one child died only. Compassion for loved ones. But for Siberia it is very small both in area and in terms of victims. Well done guys! solid five. hi

    Based on the experience of this case, it is necessary to work out the question: "And maybe the Ministry of Emergency Situations should be transferred to the Ministry of Defense and the rear services of the Ministry of Defense to resolve issues of protecting the population from emergencies?" The total cost will be lower, and the capacity of the emergency response service will be greater.
