Sellick Explains the New Mutant Coronavirus Strain

Updated December 22, 2020

Articles about the new mutant coronavirus strain that is shutting down the U.K. quote John A. Sellick Jr., DO, professor of medicine in the Division of Infectious Diseases, who said: “We don’t know yet whether it changes anything in relationship to the disease.” He says there needs to be more concrete evidence that the mutation is, in fact, driving the increase in the U.K.’s cases, rather than poor compliance with wearing face masks and social distancing.
