Scientists Trace The Spread Of Coronavirus Through Genomic Mutations
Scientists around the world are investigating the biology of the coronavirus so they can more effectively fight COVID-19. One of the frontiers of that research is tracing mutations in the virus’ genome, which scientists can use to track the spread of the disease.
NPR is remembering people who have died of coronavirus as they continued to work outside their homes during the pandemic: health care workers; grocery store clerks; city and town services employees; police; domestic workers; mail carriers; caretakers; those who kept serving others as the rest of us have stayed home.
