Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus-2 (SARSCoV-2), causative agent of Coronavirus Disease 19 (COVID19), has spread throughout the world since its first emergence in Dec. 2019 in Wuhan, China. As anticipated, SARS-CoV-2 evolution is most likely through selection, perhaps conferring enhanced fitness and/or infectivity. Numerous reports detail the molecular identification of D614G mutation in Spike protein (S-protein) (Korber et al. 2020; Koyama et al. 2020; Maitra et al. 2020) and are… Expand
