Virologist Drosten explained Mutation of the Coronavirus and why this is good news

a Mutation is a spontaneous and permanent change in the genetic material is referred to. Most often, the term is understood to be negative. Especially when he is in connection with a Virus. Because permanent changes in the genome are characterized in that they are for our own optimization, and for Survival.

a virologist Christian Drosten takes the phenomenon of the NDR Podcast "The Coronavirus-Update" and is explained in a study from England shows that the Coronavirus is evolving.

"Colorful patients," multiple viruses versions more

give The study reveals that patients can wear different virus populations in. To illustrate this, declares Drosten, you could imagine the individual virus infections in colors.

There is, therefore, "green patients" or "red patients", but you realize that there are also "colorful patients," both of which carry Viruses editions. And also pass it on. "This seems not infrequently to occur."

however, This also means that the Coronavirus is evolving as Drosten explained. The mixed virus population to remain, apparently, several patients in a row stable.

The result is that "the Virus has a better prospect of a optimization on the people in the long run. The Chance that it adapts better to the people, as if it wasn't for cans of these larger Transfer."

Drosten: Virus wants to optimize two possible options are:

What may at first sound like an extremely problematic knowledge, emerges as a glimmer of hope. This Mutation, says Drosten, could have positive consequences for the people, the virologist formulated two of them:

  • The first option would be, "that the Virus replicated better in the nose, and better transfer" and it is optimized for it still. Drosten: "In the nose we are not too sick of it, that is, the Whole is in the long term, a runny nose, no longer interested in the lungs at all. It could happen, that would be good and a trivialization of this disease."
  • The Coronavirus but it could also increase "a General replication level in all mucous membranes, which would also relate back to the lungs. Then it would be a more severe disease.“ If this happens, says Drosten clearly, "the skin everywhere really pure in the nose, but also in the lungs. We then feel sick faster.“
  • "As we rotate it, it will be harmless"

    In both cases, the Virus would have an advantage, but also the population of an advantage would entail. In focusing on the nose would spread the Virus for longer and more, because the more harmless disease not give the patient the feeling that he had to stay home.

    In General, amplification of the Virus while the Patient is severe sick, by the earlier and stronger onset of symptoms but rather from the Public.

    This optimization by Mutation, according to Drosten, therefore, is a factor, "the result is that actually virus epidemics of the time harmless."

    The virologist, stressed: "As we rotate it, it will definitely be harmless, simply due to the population immunity. But maybe Evolution plays a role."
