Doctor in the House: Should We Worry About The Coronavirus Mutating?

Dr George Lee returns to discuss the latest medical news. Expect deep insights delivered with generous humour. With COVID-19 now found across the world, there are concerns that the virus which causes the disease, SARS-CoV-2, could mutate into something more dangerous, more transmissible, or even both. While we know that the coronavirus has and could mutate further, how will this impact drug and vaccine trials that are ongoing? We speak to virologist Dr Shahid Jameel for his insights.
