Dr. Anan reveals information about “Covid” is too early to become an endemic disease because there is still a chance of the birth of a new species
Today (13 Jan. 65) Dr. Anan Chongkaewwatana, Director of Animal Health and Management Innovation Research Group National Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (Biotech), National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA) posted a message via Facebook. Anan Jongkaewwattana by stating that
Endemic diseases that virologists use as examples for their explanations are: Influenza virus and coronavirus common cold in humans
If you look at the genetic branching of these two viruses, you’ll see something in common. It is a form of branching called an imbalanced tree because it is chosen by nature to make one species the main species and branching over and over from the original species.
The original one has no branching. The new one will continue to be a local problem.
The obvious natural selection is Immunity from yearly vaccines It is a screener for influenza virus strains that have branched out to become the dominant endemic strain in that year.
Viruses without pressure or natural selection Genetic branching will come out in different epidemics. independent of each other Known as a balanced tree in the image, these viruses are not endemic, because there is still the potential for new branching strains. occurred to replace the original species.
When taking the current covid-19 virus branching pattern, a balanced tree is clearly seen.
It is not surprising that the WHO has such an opinion as it is too early to classify SARS-CoV-2 as an endemic disease. Influenza virus or other human coronavirus.
