COVID-19 is Mutating As It Spreads Across the U.S.
Massive genetic study shows coronavirus is mutating and potentially evolving amid its rapid spread in the U.S. https://t.co/XvzMgGNuWL— The Washington Post (@washingtonpost) September 23, 2020
Health Editor’s Note: While viruses are excellent at mutating, the coronavirus seems to be especially good at becoming something different than it was before. One of the mutations may have made the virus more contagious.
The good news, if there can be ‘good’ news where coronavirus is concerned, the study of more than 5,000 genetic sequences of coronavirus show the mutations do not make the virus deadlier or have changed clinical outcomes for the worse…..Carol
