Scientists work day and night to understand the virus that is gripping the entire world. The coronavirus has ravaged the world and is not going to take the name of stop soon. The infected number exceeds 400,000 and the death toll is 19,000. Researchers are doing their best to understand the composition and history of this virus so that they can come up with a remedy that can save humanity before it gets too late.
1 A Shocking New Discovery
Scientists in Iceland recently made a shocking claim that they found 40 mutations of the coronavirus. As you know, the corona virus has gripped the world, closed nations, and put the whole world in an economic crisis. With the news that there could be variations on this virus, things could escalate even further.
2 This is really bad news
As you already know, the corona virus is spreading all over the world at a very fast rate. The current number of cases is already over 400,000 and the death toll is 19,000. All hospitals are full and staff are overworked. If a new mutation of this virus is found that is stronger, we are all doomed.
3 What did the team discover?
When testing the virus, they tried to find out how many mutations the virus has undergone. These genetic variations are like viral fingerprints that help scientists figure out where the virus in the world comes from. This is important research if they want to find a way to defeat the virus.
4 What is a mutation?
All viruses must undergo some kind of mutation as they evolve. So they may or may not behave in different ways. Some mutations make a virus more contagious, others are more deadly. These mutations can make the virus stronger or even weaker in some cases. But we have to know all the mutations to beat them.
5 The mutation primarily caused the virus
The mutation of the virus allowed it to infect a human host. This virus initially only affected animals, but slowly evolved with each mutation and has now infected the human race. The next evolution may make it an unstoppable force. Currently, there is no cure that is very worrying for us.
