The coronavirus is unlikely to mutate into a deadlier variant and will eventually end up as a common cold, as informed by Professor Dame Sarah Gilbert, who created the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine.
According to the reports, Professor Dame Sarah Gilbert informed that the virus tends to become less contagious as they circulate through the population. She said – “There is no reason to think we will have a more virulent version of SARS-CoV-2. there aren’t very many places for the virus to go to have something that will evade immunity but still be a really infectious virus. We already live with four different human coronaviruses that we don’t really ever think about very much and eventually SARS-CoV-2 will become one of those.”
Further, she added “It’s just a question of how long it’s going to take to get there and what measures we’re going to have to take to manage it in the meantime. We’re still trying to raise funds to develop other vaccines that we were working on before the pandemic, against diseases that have caused outbreaks in the past and will cause outbreaks in the future. We are being financially supported for our ongoing work against COVID… but when we try to return to projects we were working on before coronavirus we’re still trying to get funding.”
