Mutations in Coronavirus

Yeah, after I wrote that, it didn’t seem to make much sense.

I really doubt it. I can only see that working if the more virulent version were selected for within a host but selected against overall (possibly because it makes people too sick). But in that case I would expect to see the same mutation cropping up in sequencing many times, and we don’t really see that.
