Examples of Viruses in a Sentence

  1. Jonathan Javitt:

    I think the Delta variant from India is one example of many ways this virus is going to mutate and attempt to circumvent the vaccines because that’s what viruses do.

  2. Francis Collins:

    There is a tendency in many White evangelical churches to assume that science is atheistic, god gave us both a sense of God's love and care and compassion, but he also gave us the brain and the opportunity to understand God's creation, which is nature, which includes things like viruses. And I think God expected us to use those gifts to understand how to protect ourselves and others from disease. If we have the opportunity to heal through medicine, I think God expects us to do that and not count on some supernatural intervention to come and save us when he's already given us the chance to be saved by other means.

  3. Peter Daszak:

  4. Jason Dickinson:

    I’ve had it. I had a very mild case. That does n’t mean that if I get it again, it’s going to be mild again, but it’s the elderly. It’s the weak. It’s the the people that are susceptible to these viruses that I worry about because I can still be a carrier and bring it back to them.

  5. Robert Redfield:
