On July 3, Chief Infectious Disease Officer and Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases of the United States Anthony Fauci said that the rate of coronavirus proliferation may increase in case of its mutation. The expert noted that there are disputes on this issue, but the data obtained, in his opinion, suggests that there is a certain mutation, which accelerates the reproduction of the virus and increases its concentration in the body.
