‘More Contagious’ Coronavirus Strain Becoming Dominant Form of Disease Worldwide, According to Study

This strain of the virus could make patients vulnerable to a second infection.

Published

on

A group of scientists from the Los Alamos National Laboratory are warning of a new strain of the coronavirus disease that is more contagious than the original.

The scientists published their research into the new strain of the disease in a paper on Tuesday. They claim that the new form of coronavirus originated in Europe before spreading to the United States, and could in time prove to be even more dangerous.

The current general scientific consensus is that patients who have recovered from coronavirus cannot get sick with the disease a second time. The spread of a new strain of the virus could make it possible for humans with coronavirus antibodies to incur the viral disease a second time.

The mutation Spike D614G is of urgent concern; after beginning to spread in Europe in early February, when introduced to new regions it repeatedly and rapidly becomes the dominant form. Also, we present evidence of recombination between locally circulating strains, indicative of multiple strain infections. These finding have important implications for SARS-CoV-2 transmission, pathogenesis and immune interventions.

Viruses that infect millions of humans often mutate into more advantageous forms, through the process of natural selection. While a wide spread of the coronavirus disease does mean that many people develop immunity to the disease, it also means the virus has a large playing field for mutations favorable for its further spread to naturally develop.

Virologists have noted a lack of genetic diversity among coronavirus samples, which testifies in great part to the novelty of the disease. Scientists researching the disease are hoping that coronavirus proves to be less biologically adaptable than influenza, which requires a new vaccine every year. Unfortunately, the research into the new strain of the disease could cast doubt on such an assumption.

Joe Biden Injured While Playing With Dog, Expected to See Orthopedist

Biden appears to have suffered a minor injury.

Published

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden reportedly suffered an injury while playing with a dog at his Delaware home on Sunday morning. He’s expected to receive treatment from an orthopedist this afternoon.

Pool reporters were told Sunday that the injury wasn’t serious and that Biden is only being examined out of an abundance of caution. There hasn’t been an update since the pool announcement of the incident.

Biden rarely campaigned during the presidential election, instead opting to remain at his Delaware home and proclaim “lids” as early as 9:10 AM. He’d conceivably have no choice but to assume a more demanding schedule if he’s ultimately inaugurated as President.

If Biden is ultimately elected in December by the electoral college, he’ll be the oldest president ever to be inaugurated for a first term by far. President Trump currently holds the record for being the oldest to be inaugurated, having taken office when he was 71. Biden turned 78 earlier this month.
