Good news? Covid mutation may make virus more vulnerable to vaccine

Nov 13, 2020 21:56 IST

A common mutation in the novel coronavirus that has enabled it to spread more quickly around the world may also make it more susceptible to a vaccine, says a new study. Published in the journal Science, the study proves some of the first concrete findings of how SARS-CoV-2, which causes COVID-19, is evolving. Researchers in the US noted that the new strain of coronavirus, called D614G, emerged in Europe and has become the most common in the world. While this strain spreads faster, in animal studies it was not associated with more severe disease.
