here it says the virus isn’t changing rapidly.I looked it up. Viruses are constantly evolving, but it takes years to change significantly.
This virus is troubling scientists because it appears that it might be changing more rapidly.
They do say that often the small evolutionary changes actually hurts the virus's chances to spread until it evolves again.
The evolution is a continual experimental process for viruses trying to survive against immunization and drugs.
They often go latent until they have evolved enough to reappear. They have no brains but an incredible desire to reproduce.
They are not unlike plants in that regard. All of nature is driven to evolve to reproduce and survive.
If science could discover what internal process drives the need to reproduce, they could eliminate all harmful viruses and bacteria.
point being....nobody knows anything for sure yet.
