Ocean’s calling for the COVID-19 cure, Antiviral Plant and Gamma Rays

Finding answers in the ocean

Microbiologists from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute discovered the bacteria that underline this fundamental role for COVID-19. The bacteria were identified years ago. It is also useful to diagnose AIDS and SARS. The research, published in the Journal of Applied & Environmental Microbiology, continues to be of interest today as the ocean is a valid ally against the virus. The ocean is closely tied to human health.

The environment protects and helps humankind

Solutions to problems that threaten humankind come from the environment. Therefore, humankind should strive, now more than ever, to protect the ocean, rather than suffocate it with waste and plastic. The “health” of the global ocean — the interconnected system of Earth’s oceanic waters — is both affected by and a threat to human activities. While people have lived in harmony with the ocean for generations and have relied on its bounty, things have changed and the Earth is now in great danger.

Oceans are actually less explored than the Moon, there is so much in depths of vast oceans. Water and Air are the two essentials and they have a strong relation to each other.
