Peer-Reviewed Publication

Compuscript Ltd

Announcing a new article publication for Zoonoses journal. Over the past 2 years, severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) has continually evolved in human hosts, thus leading to the emergence of variants with altered viral transmission, disease severity, and evasion of immunity. Although vaccines for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) have been developed at an unprecedented pace, the emergence of variants has posed a constant threat to the effectiveness of the approved vaccines. In this Commentary, the authors review the key variants and discuss their implications in viral replication, transmission, and immune evasion.
