The coronavirus is mutating. But don’t freak out yet.

The coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, is mutating. It’s true, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. It sounds concerning - if the virus is changing, that could imply that it’s getting worse. That’s not the case. Although it’s true that the coronavirus is mutating, that doesn’t mean it’s getting more dangerous. In fact, it can help us in our battle against the COVID-19 pandemic. Here’s how.

    I know I asked for it to change a couple weeks ago and then it started to attack kids more.. it's all these meteors correlated at my research that I'm posting my information to trying to show the world I'm God but everyone denying me and removing my information stealing my alien tech trying to kill me and they're causing their plan and themselves to get wiped out with the Corona virus as you see the last country I had talked about a couple weeks ago or so was Brazil and now as you see they're getting wiped out with the Corona virus the same thing happened with India back in February when I posted all my information in Malaysia India Russia and so forth and all three of those countries got hit with meteors and then they started getting wiped out by the Corona virus!!

    I have a theory that the virus will gradually mutate into a homogeneous form in the human population. After which time it will jump to another species of animal, most likely domesticated high density population farmed animals. This would happen by a farm worker with an immunity carrying the dormant virus. Once in the farm animals it would spread and create another homogeneous mutated form of the virus. This mutated form of the virus would eventually infect another farm worker intern once again infecting the human population. The cycle would continue endlessly unless some sort of measures are taken such as the wearing of masks by farm workers who work with high density populations of animals. Bats also live in high densities and a human virus may have been transmitted to the bat population whist a person carrying a human virus was collecting bats in a cave, and it seems to have been a coincidence that the virus was transmitted to the human population, farmed animals have a history of mutating and transmitting viruses.
