COVID-19 in Animals: What to fear and what to learn

Recent studies have raised concerns that the COVID-19 virus could spread within infected animal populations, potentially accumulate mutations that might enhance transmissibility and/or virulence, and then return back to people as dangerous, possibly vaccine-evading variants. Besides providing insight into the current pandemic, a better understanding of transmission within animal species, and of interspecies transmissions (collectively called spillover) can aid preparations for the next human pandemic. This is where biomedical researchers can put their skills to work.
