Is Covid-19 Evolving? No, but it sure is mutating fast!

Aug 31, 2021 | Science


People are constantly asking me, “Is Covid-19 evolving?” So I went ahead and recorded my answer. In short, no, there is nothing to suggest that it is on its way to becoming anything but a coronavirus. In fact, it should be picking up enough mutations over time that it slowly degrades. In other words, it is on its way to becoming a decrepit coronavirus, given a decade or two. But this does not mean that it won’t find that lucky mutation that makes it spread faster or that makes is more deadly in the meantime.

    Incredibly helpful explanation! Studied/taught the basics MRNA 25+ years when investigating the Human Genome Project – had no idea how understanding genetic mutation and entropy theoretically would be helpful in real life in 2021! (Interesting that Dr. Francis Collins was a key Biologist with the Human Genome Project and is now leading the NIH.) Thank you for helping make complex scientific concepts more accessible to those who want to understand the facts!
