CCP-virus “optimized” to kill: decode D614G mutation

About 70% of the confirmed cases of CCP-virus are linked to a strain with D614G mutation, showing significantly more infective.

See D614G in a 3-D model:

In this video, the D614G mutation in the SARS-CoV-2 Spike protein is explored, which is thought to play a key role for higher viral transmissibility.

This is based on a research paper:

“Spike mutation pipeline reveals the emergence of a more transmissible form of SARS-CoV-2” – (Pre-print) Korber et al (2020).
