Can't be true. This is like saying if we seal a virus in a jar, then the virus is more likely to jump out of the jar because it adapts. Nope, the virus does not have an intention. Rather, it is a statistical consequence that the more viruses there are, the higher chances of variants produced.- Does allowing the virus to roam freely increase the chance that mutations will create a new strain that needs a different vaccine?
The harder we make it for the virus to spread, the greater the evolutionary pressure in favour a more transmissable variant.
The active virus pool will consist of all the variants which are left alive.
Those that can hide in our bodies and show no symptoms but reactivated now and then will be most disturbing to us.
I am starting to accept that this will be our future.
