According to American scientists, coronavirus mutates eight to ten times slower than a regular flu virus. This feature can help defeat the disease.

Coronavirus strains are very similar to each other, writes RIA News with reference to USA Today. In this case, the symptoms and severity of the disease are not dependent on the strain. The disease develops in different ways only because of the associated diseases of the patient and general health. However, the “soft version” of the virus does not exist. However, due to the slow mutation feature of COVID-19, the developed vaccine can defeat the virus for decades.

Meanwhile, earlier scientists from the Chinese Academy of Sciences came to the opposite conclusion. According to them, there are more and less infectious strains. Also, experts from the Middle Kingdom declared that the virus mutates faster than they expected.
