The change, which is called P681R and transforms a proline residue into an arginine, falls within an intensely studied region of the spike protein called the furin cleavage site.

No problems there, folks, nope. All is well.

A pitbull belonging to her family bit her face off when she was a toddler.  Docs were able to stitch everything back on pretty well except her nose.  Just kind of left a breathing hole where it was.
