SARS-Cov-2 has experienced roughly the same amount of evolutionary change during the pandemic as humans have since Homo habilis first walked the Earth.
Why it is important to pay attention to evolutionary theory when considering population health.
The P1 variant has arrived in the UK, with early analysis suggesting it may be more transmissible and able to partially escape existing immunity.
Even those that live in areas where the population has already been vaccinated would not be totally protected if the virus mutates elsewhere.
We can help vaccines keep up with the mutating coronavirus by doubling down on preventive measures. This means increasing physical distancing and wearing masks even outdoors. We must all act like we are carrying a new variant, because any one of us might be.
