Through mutations and genetic reassortment, a virus can mutate and the resulting virus variants can evade our drugs, our vaccines, and our body's own immune response. Using specific viruses like influenza, HIV or SARS-CoV-2 (the virus responsible for COVID-19) as examples, I will introduce the basics of how viruses replicate, and the processes via which mutations arise.
