Researchers say that the SARS-CoV-2 virus does mutate to various strains, but that is not harmful to human.A study published on MedRxiv which is not peer-reviewed stated that the new coronavirus is mutating into various strains, with each different mode of attacking or binding and causing varying symptoms and effects. The research team found the existence of 45 different strains with different modes of attacking the human host cells.

Whereas it is told by the researchers and scientists that the new virus could transform into various strains, there is still no evidence on how it will affect the patient. Marc Lipsitch, an infectious disease epidemiologist at Harvard University said that there was no credible evidence of a change in the biology of the virus either for better or for worse. Also, it has been observed that most mutations don’t change how the virus functions and is not harmful.
