Weirdly, though, that just doesn't seem to be happening. Somehow we have a new variant called Omicron spreading rapidly and outcompeting the Delta variant, and with a considerable immune-escape component. So just when is this virus supposed to mutate itself out of existence? It's still around and appears to be going strong.

And now there are sub-variants of Omicron. I suspect it will take a few too many mutational turns and fizzle out eventually.

Great. Come back and post here when that happens. :whistle:

Covid cases globally have been falling rapidly: ... -last-week

The virus is finding it increasingly more difficult to replicate itself and transmit to new hosts because of the mutational baggage that is carries.
