The coronavirus is mutating. But don’t freak out yet.

The coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, is mutating. It’s true, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. It sounds concerning - if the virus is changing, that could imply that it’s getting worse. That’s not the case. Although it’s true that the coronavirus is mutating, that doesn’t mean it’s getting more dangerous. In fact, it can help us in our battle against the COVID-19 pandemic.

    • I also believe that mutation of the virus can keep decreasing gradually in case of more asymptomatic patients. As their immune system is strong enough to tackle the virus so the same mutated virus will not long if its keep spreading. And this is how herd immunity can be successful. Iam from India where our recovery cases are more faster but patients requiring vents and deaths are very less compare to US. It means the mutated virus which is spreading here is less virulent and less effective. Can you create a video about the same?
