Is the COVID-19 Virus Mutating?
Yet another indication that the COVID-19 virus
is mutating and becoming more contagious
Recent research shows that the COVID-19 coronavirus has mutated. The mutation contains more spikes by which the virus enters and infects healthy cells than the original variant. Also the “backbone” which holds the spikes together has become sturdier as well.
In the “real world” we see evidence of this in that the countries that are currently experiencing a surge in COVID-19 cases, are surpassing countries that surged earlier in total confirmed COVID-19 cases.
The below graph details this phenomenon for the few countries that have experienced the most confirmed COVID-19 case over the time period: mid-March through the end of June 2020.
