Russian doctors suggest that the new type of COVID-19 virus mutates so quickly that a person does not have time to develop antibodies to new strains. Repeated cases of coronavirus recorded in China may be due to the fact that the human immune system simply does not have time to adapt to virus mutations.

As they say "News"According to Pavel Volchkov, head of the MIPT genomic engineering laboratory, usually all cells infected with viruses are destroyed during treatment, but a new coronavirus mutates faster than the human body can develop antibodies to it. Along with this, infected cells are not destroyed, but remain in the body. And the disease goes into the chronic phase.

Prior to that, doctors discovered that the coronavirus can proceed both without symptoms and disguise itself as other diseases. For example, in several patients, doctors suspected dengue fever, which is accompanied by fever and itching. But it turned out that a new coronavirus was "disguised" as a fever. At the same time, Chinese doctors predict the end of the epidemic by June 2020.
