Developments in understanding virus and treating the disease.
The coronavirus is not mutating significantly as it circulates through the human population, according to scientists who are closely studying the novel pathogen’s genetic code. That relative stability suggests the virus is less likely to become more or less dangerous as it spreads, and represents encouraging news for researchers hoping to create a long-lasting vaccine.
A fascinating graphical tool for watching the evolution and spread of the virus.
Countries across the globe are currently scrambling to get their hands on all important Coronavirus testing kits. The problem is that due to the high demand, stock levels re incredibly low. So in this video, we explain how these tests actually work.
