Mutation of Coronavirus You can imagine a virus like a tree growing and branching out, each branch on the tree is slightly different than the others. By comparing the branches, scientists can label them according to the differences. These small differences, or variants (mutation), are studied and identified since the beginning of the pandemic. Viruses constantly change through mutation, and new variants of a virus are expected to occur. Sometimes new variants emerge and disappear. Other times, new variants persist. … Continue reading “Will mutation of corona virus ever be stopped? Upcoming New Variants”
