Weather of Arabia - Imagine that while you are talking to someone who listens to you with interest, his face begins to pale a little, then he feels dizzy and falls unconscious. In a deep sleep!

 

The village of Kalachi in Kazakhstan, or the village of "deep sleep", suffered from a disease called "deep sleep", where its people fell into a sudden and deep sleep that could reach for days without knowing the reason, and the world's scientists at the time failed to explain the phenomenon.

 

These sleep attacks affected 10% of the village's population, including a group of students who fell into a deep sleep like death for a whole day during school hours, and when they woke up, they mentioned a group of hallucinations they saw during their sleep.

 

As for hallucinations, memory loss, nausea, and the continuation of the seizure for weeks on end, it is considered one of the symptoms of the disease, which official documents in Kazakhstan mention that the first infections were recorded in 2010, while the peak was reached in 2013, and it continued without a clear explanation and increased, which forced the state to take a decision to evacuate the village in March 2015 .

 

 

Theories developed to solve the mystery of the villagers suffering from deep sleep disease

Scientists enumerated various theories to explain the mysterious disease, the most prominent of which was the excessive accumulation of fluid in the brains of the villagers, or their infection with viruses and bacterial infections such as meningitis, or the possibility of chemical poisoning from the main water spring of the village , from which animals do not drink.

 

Where scientists believed that the materials leaked from the uranium mine that existed since the days of the Soviet Union (a mine that was not used for nearly forty years), or through raw materials for chemical weapons that the military dug in the ground.

 

To verify this theory, the scientists decided to design a special “dron” plane and lower it to the mine to take soil and water samples due to the danger of a person descending into the mine, as the local authorities believed earlier, that toxic waste from the mine was buried in the surrounding soil , which called the Ministry of The Ministry of Health examined more than 7 thousand houses adjacent to these mines, but they did not find any traces of poisoning .

 

Among the previous theories that explained the accident was what was stated by Serki Lukashenko, Director of the National Nuclear Center at the Institute of Radiation Safety and Ecology, that carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons in the air of the village were more than 10 times higher than the percentage allowed to exist in the air, in addition to the presence of the highest percentage in the air. Kalachi.

 

 

Solve the mystery of why the villagers are sick

The fact of the disease that the residents of the Kazakh village of Kalachi have suffered for 3 years, which began in 2012, is due to the high proportion of carbon dioxide and hydrocarbons to very high levels in the village’s air, due to an abandoned old uranium mine from the Soviet era on which the village was built, Resulting in low oxygen levels in the village, the side effects of the spread of these gases were people losing consciousness for several days, and included headaches and memory loss, but the Kazakh authorities had evacuated the village in 2015 and moved its residents to other villages.
