Being "drug resistant" is more a thing with bacteria (which is a living thing that we try to poison with antibiotics) , we have a broad selection of drugs to kill bacteria, but they have recently gained resistance to most of the drugs, that makes them more dangerous (as dangerous as they were before antibiotics).First, I am sorry if it is causing futher fear to people. I have a question about the virus's behavior? I am having some idea about the biology, but I think any people know more than me. Do you think the RNA Covid19 virus will mutate to the point of drug resistant virus? One experiment drug did failed in recent. Thank you.
It isn’t a surprise that COVID-19 is mutating, it’s pretty much what researchers expected. The key question for those developing vaccines against the virus is how extensively it might mutate before they can get a product to market.www.google.com
With virus we don't really have much options, virus are not living things, they don't eat or breath, they are more like tiny machines, the best we can do is train our own defenses to fight it (with vaccines) so there is not a risk that they become "drug resistant" since we don't really have drugs to kill virus for the most part.
