Lenta.ru talked to the specialist. The most dangerous mutation in SARS-CoV-2 will be one that will attack the cells of the immune system. According to Bolibok, this is unlikely.
He suggested that such a mutation would happen if the coronavirus interbreed with HIV and learned to attack T-lymphocytes, the cells of the immune system. Because of this, an infected person will not even be able to recover.
The doctor noted that it is relatively easy for viruses of the same species to exchange pieces of the genome. But interspecific crossing occurs much more difficult and less often, the probability of such an event in nature is almost zero.
Formerly Bolibok toldwhy does the coronavirus have mutations? He also explained what the experts mean by the strain.
