Why are scientists obsessed with the coronavirus G strain?

One of the big unknowns with coronavirus to date is how much it’s mutating and how that could hurt the effectiveness of a vaccine.

The worry is that by the time scientists have found a vaccine and tested it, the virus would have already changed rendering the vaccine ineffective.

The dominant coronavirus strain is known as the «G strain», which has a mutation right where vaccines are targeting.

So what does this mean for the rollout of a coronavirus vaccine?

On today’s show:

* What has the CSIRO found regarding coronavirus’ «G strain»?

* Another study has found that antibodies can disappear after three months. What does this mean for longer term immunity?

* NSW records more COVID cases than Victoria

* An update from the White House. How is President Trump tracking?
