Researchers: Coronavirus mutation could make it more contagious

New research is causing some to worry about the possibility of the coronavirus becoming even more infectious, reports CNN.

Analysts at the Scripps Research Institute in Florida reportedly found a mutation affecting the virus' spike protein, which is what the virus uses to get inside cells. The researchers worry this mutation could make it easier for the virus to infect people.

However, the World Health Organization said other mutations of the virus haven't made it more infectious and that these mutations won't impact how effective the vaccines in development now would be.
