Coronavirus may not be cured soon! Researchers from San Lazaro Hospital see a change in mutation

Coronavirus is a more deadly disease now as it can spread to millions of people with the current mutation

The Coronavirus pandemic is currently spreading like wildfire all across the world. The deadly SARS-CoV-2 virus is currently mutating more than normal proportions. However, in terms of potency, the virus may be losing some value. This is according to the research of COVID-19 from workers at San Lazaro Hospital.

Dr. Rontgene Solante, San Lazaro Hospital’s Adult Infectious Diseases, and Tropical Medicine Section chair head says, the coronavirus can still spread easily but it may not be as much deadly anymore. This means that exposure to the virus is still a big possibility. Billions might be infected from the disease. But the death rate may not be that increasing anymore.

Coronavirus mutation gets stronger but may not kill you

According to a June 5 report from the research, Italy’s leading virologist, Dr. Arnaldo Caruso suggested that the virus is getting weaker as the number of deaths, cases, severely ill patients and the viral load they’ve seen on swabs are declining or holding steady even as the country reopens.

Several doctors across the globe also claim that the virus is becoming less potent, more diffused, and less deadly. Citing data from the Department of Health (DOH), Solante said the number of COVID-19 cases in the country is still growing, which indicates an ongoing community transmission.
