Gruinard Island - Those Places Are Forbidden For Tourists

In 1942, the British government bought the Scottish island of Gruinard to test biological weapons, especially anthrax. Due to a multitude of experiments, anthrax contaminated the entire island and caused the death of 95% of the population. Until the 1980s, this island was considered the deadliest place on earth. For this reason, it began to be cleaned in 1986. Although this island was declared safe in 1990, no one wants to come back. Experts have warned that anthrax spores remain in the country and warned that the island will not be acceptable for life on the island for several hundred years. It is also prohibited for tourists.
