Could a new virus kill off the human race

no one left on planet Earth…

Theoretically, yes. But thats highly unlikely to occur anytime soon. Life on earth has been around a long time. It’s certainly possible we could get a plague much more lethal than Coronovirus though.


i think if world war 3 ever happened

that could end it too

Impossible. Even a bioengineered one couldn’t do that.

Viruses that kill someone are evolutionarily disadvantageous. They tend to evolve to be less virulent, since it helps them propagate.

I think a massive asteroid would be a more likely candidate for human total destruction rather than a virus or wars though. Pockets would probably survive in the other scenarios.

Russia has a weapon that launches Putin’s forehead at the asteroid and blows it up.


Who knows? I mean no one predicted AIDs or COVID. I think it’s possible. It was just luck that the bubonic plague didn’t wipe out everybody instead of just half of Europe.

There’s still no cure for AIDs.

No it’s not possible.

It’s virtually possible but I don’t see how it could reasonably happen.

What if there’s more and more mutations until one becomes super deadly? :s

obviously I hope this doesn’t happen. Feel the need to add that lol.


Yeah, I agree it’s possible but extremely unlikely. Much more likely to have something deadly but not a extinction event.

Even with an extremely deadly virus you are more than likely going to have pockets of people who are not exposed to it who will survive.

no , we have norton antivirus and also avast and kaspersky.


I suppose it is theoretically possible but with every virus I know of that has come along so far in the history of mankind there has always a subset of the population that has a natural immunity or survive. Ebola, Polio, etc… I’ve even heard of 1 case of a person immune to HIV/AIDS.


New viruses are because of global warming at least as far back as HIV
They expect 10 new viruses a year with one per decade as bad as the current Coronavirus pandemic
