    Default Good news

    “ A giant study of more than 12,000 mutations in the novel coronavirus finds none of them has made a big difference in how easily it infects people, researchers reported Wednesday.

    The mutations, found in more than 46,000 samples taken from 99 different countries, all appear to be neutral, the team of leading viral genetics experts reported in the journal Nature Communications.

    "We find that none of the recurrent SARS-CoV-2 mutations tested are associated with significantly increased viral transmission," Francois Balloux, Lucy van Dorp and colleagues of University College London reported.”

    So far, coronavirus mutations don't mean much, big study finds - CNN

    That's a proper Doom post right there.

    That mink strain seemed to have them in a panic, culling all those tens of millions of them. Still, puts them out of their misery.

    One day mother nature will cull all humans. If the aliens don't beat her to it.
    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    As a species we probably deserve it.

    If any Predator aliens are out there, come on if you are hard enough!
