A unique mutation of new coronavirus was discovered, and it could be the end of the pandemic

SARS-CoV-2 is the virus that causes the illness COVID-19. Viral mutations are a normal part of a virus’s evolution and can alter the severity of the disease they cause. A team of scientists at the Arizona State University (ASU), United States conducted a research on coronavirus RNA sequences. They discovered a mutation in the genetic code of SARS-CoV-2 which is 81 letters in the virus’s genome had been deleted. The deletions that the ASU team identified in SARS-CoV-2 affect parts of the code that produce a particular protein. The scientists believe that this protein is key to helping SARS-CoV-2 evade human defenses, allowing it to replicate quickly. This finding is interesting because the nature of the mutation suggests it may have an association with a less severe form of the disease. This reflects changes scientists saw in the 2003 SARS outbreak, as previous research has suggested that similar deletions reduced the ability of the coronavirus at the heart of the 2003 SARS outbreak to replicate.
