‘Striking’ coronavirus mutations found within one family cluster, Chinese scientists say

But theoretically, mutations can make recovered patients sick again and cheat existing detection methods because they target only a small segment of the viral genome.
A study led by University of Minnesota researcher Li Fang predicted that a single mutation at a specific spot in the genome could significantly increase the virus’s ability to bind with cells on the surface of the human respiratory system, according to their paper published in the Journal of Virology on January 29.
