Fauci's proposing something of concern, that's for sure. This is an incredibly "smart" virus. If it does significantly increase its ability to replicate, I sure hope it becomes less lethal. We sure don't need a change like this.

Willowby - that is the singled best post I've seen from you. Seriously. I love Scientific American, and that page with the animations and explanations is brilliant.

Thanks, yav. It perfectly explains it with the animations, even to a layman.

Checking out the graphics but I have to comment on a small beef in the intro...

The proofreading ability isn't a surprise. It's a feature of coronaviruses that's well known and studied.

Yes, but the graphics are rich and detailed, and though it takes time to download the VR model of the virus is really well done. Also the mechanisms of defense are illustrated/animated well, as is the mode of reproduction.

We should name this mutation COVID-45 to honor Trump for "handling" the pandemic like he has.
