Tests proved the stability and the risk of this pathogen under certain conditions. Analysis of the development of the virus suggests that its history is longer than the history of mankind, according to The Journal.

The herpes virus was transmitted to humans from ancient apes. It happened around 1.6 million years ago. Traces of other strains of the herpes virus have an even longer history of development - from 4 to 6 million years.
