Kasper interviewed by Nature News about SARS-CoV-2 genomics

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Kasper was interviewed in a Nature News article that discussed the cluster of SARS-CoV-2 mutations found in farmed mink and people in Denmark. Current data suggest that the mink mutations do not allow the virus to spread more easily or make symptoms more severe in people. However, culling the animals is probably necessary as uncontrolled spread in mink could eventually lead to dangerous mutations.
