Virus mutations could hold clues for COVID-19 vaccine

Researchers in the UK have discovered almost 200 recurrent genetic mutations to the virus that causes COVID-19.

Their findings offer clues as to how the novel coronavirus, known as SARS-CoV-2, is adapting as it spreads from one person to another.

They could also help scientists better target drugs and vaccines to parts of the virus that are more stable over time.

The study, published in Infection, Genetics and Evolution, was led by the University College London (UCL) Genetics Institute.
