London, June 10 (ANI): A researcher from Sri Lanka has claimed that the planet's movement across the face of the sun last week will have blown billions of bacteria and viruses by strong solar winds from sunspots on its surface.

Professor Chandra Wickramasinghe, 73, asserts that the Earth is "right in the firing line" of tiny microbes speeding from Venus that are likely to lead to the epidemic.

"We know that there are micro-organisms in the clouds of Venus, similar to the ones on Earth," the Daily Star quoted him as saying.

"Billions of bacteria and viruses will have been blown here by strong solar winds from sunspots on the sun's surface.

"We are right in the firing line.

"There is the strong likelihood of a flu epidemic here in the coming months," he added. (ANI)
