“It also opens the door to a “nightmare scenario”: That the two viruses will meet in a single person, swap their mutations, and create an even more dangerous strain of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.”
This reminds of some posts from a few weeks ago about the one patient who had many mutations in himself. I died unfortunately after 154 days of treatment. He was released from hospital several times, only to return. Surveillance showed the dozens of mutations in this one guy. (Citation needed- but I read it here).
A few months ago I guessed that San Diego’s, or LA in the SoCal outbreak would be a mutation event. Do you know where this has begun, Chiu being from SF?
