Deadly Arctic Plagues?

I put it in the Quarantine Zone because I think we all need a little distraction from the Coronavirus. And I think I have found it.

Have any of you ever considered the deadly organisms that might be lurking in Arctic ice? It's melting more and more every year. And as it does, it releases hidden organisms that have been dormant for millions of years. Yikes!

What do the rest of you think of *this* risk? And how great is it really?
