Covid-19: The Safest Place On Earth Stand on Ice

 

 

Antarctica, the ice-covered landmass is the only continent that remains untouched by the Coronavirus  outbreak.

“We now seem to be the ‘safest’ place on the planet,” said Stijn Tholen, a European Space Agency medical research doctor who is spending a year on the ice investigating how humans adapt to living in extreme environments, in an email, according to US Today.

“The increasing darkness and cold here already feel so otherworldly, and to see what is happening in the rest of the world makes me feel even more distant,” he said.
