Studies have found that COVID-19 can replicate three.two times faster than SARS, which caused a global health crisis in 2003.
According to the South China Morning Post, despite its fast replication process, the virus causes slower responses in our bodies.
This leads to a more asymptomatic spread and makes it harder to contain the pandemic.
Scientists also claim to have found three variations of the virus.
Researchers claim this proves COVID-19 will be around for some time to come.
