(ORDO NEWS) — The coronavirus pandemic poses a threat to non-contact peoples who voluntarily refused to interact with civilization.
It is worth explaining that the people of such tribes are aware of the existence of other developed peoples, but they decided not to intersect with them in any way.
Scientists explain that small nations do not have immunity against the most common diseases. For example, even the common flu, which is treated within a few days, can kill them, since the body does not have protective antibodies.
There is no need to talk about the spread of the coronavirus. According to scientists, it can lead to the extinction of many small peoples, as was the case with the measles outbreak.
Brazilian scientists have said that indigenous peoples have a six-higher risk of dying from coronavirus than the general population.
Scientists from Ecuador also speak of a similar trend. In their opinion, small nations, which make up about seven percent of the main population, risk their lives due to the refusal of medical care and, in general, contact.
Non-contact peoples, despite their isolation, can still become infected with COVID-19, scientists say. For example, the Tagaeri and the Taromenanes can carry the virus through the Huaorani Indians.
The Arara, Sapanava and others tribes also belong to the risk group.
