Coronavirus: The Mutation

Coronavirus: The Mutation

As you know the first case of this pandemic corona virus or covid-19 was registered on late December 2019 in Wuhan a city of China, according to the latest research done by the Indian scientist in which they accumulated some information about covid-19 through collecting sample from different geographical location such as USA, Italy, China, Nepal & India and after their analysis they stated that this virus have some unique features which make it different and harmful form other viruses, these features include like mutation in it’s spike surface of glycoprotein (A93OV) in Indians it reveals out that this virus attack on nine genes of the host in other countries but in India it attack only on one gene of the host which surprised every one.

The NCBI (The National Center of Biotechnology) tested more than 400 genome of SARS of covid virus, which can be beneficial for the formation of vaccine.

After the comparison of covid virus of India & China the result was very shocking, it stated that their is a mutation take place in covid virus and Indian one is about to 17% differ from Chinese one, changes can be seen in the spike surface glycoprotein of it.

Therefore, due to the mutation it impact on the antigens and immunogenic change which are unique in the viruses. So, they analysis SNP due to mutation and they find that their is decrease stability without changing their properties.

After all the analysis it comes that it’s very hard to make vaccine or cure of this virus because it rapidly changes and does not stop at any stable form or final form. We should start planning how to live with it because it was not finished soon.
