The well-known expert Yevgeny Konin said that the “Delta” strain, which currently dominates among the strains of the emerging corona virus, is considered as the base for the development of this virus, and may be its last mutation.
“Over a period of time, about two months, the delta mutant remained dominant and stable,” added Konin, a member of the US National Academy of Sciences, a member of Academia Europaea, a foreign member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, and a lead researcher at the National Center for Biotechnology of the National Medical Library of the US Institutes of Health. The question remains – will this mutation be replaced by another, or will it become the final form of the virus? Of course we must realize that the adaptive pathway of any organism, including the virus, is very complex. It involves many different peaks and options. But the more pivotal The virus and the more adapted it is in the host body, the more difficult it is to develop upwards, with much fewer ways of transmission to a higher form of infection.”
Konin explained that in the conditions of vaccinating the population against the Corona virus, the ability of the virus to penetrate the formed immune defense goes to the fore. He noted that the emergence of such strains is accompanied by some difficulties – it is difficult for the virus to maintain a high ability to bind to receptors, and at the same time “escape” from antibodies.
“It’s difficult to combine all of that, and there are very few delta chances left, to produce mutations that are able to withstand the antibodies,” he said.
The expert admitted that he cannot be certain that the virus will not move to a new level of development, but the mentioned factors indicate that the situation is not very bad.
