Recent Study: Coronavirus Mutates to Be Easier to Contagious

Merdeka.com – A new study examining the mutation of the coronavirus did not impact the clinical outcome of the disease or make it deadly, but one of the mutations could make it more infectious.

A new study conducted by scientists in Houston and published in MedRxiv has revealed a new mutation of the coronavirus that is potentially stronger and more volatile.

“We have given a lot of room for this virus. Out there their population is now very large, “said James Musser, one of the study authors told The Washington Post, quoted from the Sputnik page, Thursday (24/9).

David Morens, a virologist at the National Institute of Allergic Diseases and Infectious Diseases, also said that when the virus circulates throughout the population it has the potential to become more contagious and could negatively impact the ability to control it.

So the virus adapts to the use of masks?

He described the virus may be adapting to measures such as wearing masks, maintaining distance and washing hands that could potentially affect vaccine formulations.

“Even though we don’t know yet, there is still a chance that this coronavirus, when our population level immunity is high enough it will find a way to evade our immunity, and if that happens we will be in the same situation as the flu, we have to catch up with the virus. , when the virus mutates we have to tamper with our vaccine, “he added.

There are currently more than 31 million cases of Covid-19 registered worldwide with at least 1 million related deaths, according to John Hopkins University data.

The United States remains the worst-affected country with more than 6.9 million cases and more than 200,000 deaths.

Three-door Toyota Land Cruiser 200 is shown in the render

A shortened version of “Kruzak” would attract not only a reduced price tag, and improved maneuverability and dynamics.

The iconic SUV was introduced in 2007 and regardless of the version, has always stood out in the line of “ATV” Japanese brand luxury in tandem with gloss chrome elements of the exterior. However, what if the manufacturer decided to release a “budget” modification of the flagship? The portal Driver-news.ru fantasized about this, resulting in the shown rendering showing three-door Toyota Land Cruiser 200.

It is noteworthy that the Japanese have released a three-door “Kruzak”, example – model Toyota Land Cruiser Prado, which in several versions has cropped body. However, none of them has the 249-strong “diesel” or 309-horsepower gasoline engine as the 200-th, and our idea is to focus TLC 200 in power and affordability.

Virtual prototype looks like “field for the rich”, because it is devoid of chrome parts, cropped and off-road, but definitely doesn’t cost half a million rubles. Anyway, this “Kruzak” the interest of the Russian motorists, because it combines practicality and off road capability. Utility cropped Toyota Land Cruiser 200 provide unpainted bumpers, plastic protection of the wings and doors. The dynamics and patency of the car would improve due to reduced weight and shortened the wheelbase.

Three-door Toyota Land Cruiser 200 would be more interesting not only for off-road enthusiasts, but also for services that require reliable transport. Shortened “Kruzak” has come to be inspectors working in remote regions, for canine services and so on.

Toyota Land Cruiser: the history of the legendary model

Kruzak is produced longer than all other Toyota models.

Toyota Land Cruiser is a true legend of the Japanese automobile industry. The car was born back in 1951 and was produced in convertible, hardtop, station wagon and truck bodies. Thanks to the supporting frame and all-wheel drive, Kruzak instantly won the hearts of motorists, it became especially popular in Australia.

Toyota BJ

The first “Cruiser“, which the, by the way, called Toyota BJ, equipped with a 3.4-liter 85-horsepower engine, combined with a 3-speed “mechanics”. “Ponizhayki” was not provided, but thanks to the sturdy body, frame and elements from trucks, the car showed impressive off-road capabilities. In 1954, the model was renamed Land Cruiser – a kind of “otvetochka” Land Rover.

Toyota Land Cruiser 20

The second generation of “Kruzak” was produced from 1955 to 1960. When creating this car, engineers focused on comfort and a more civilian appearance. Body features have become more streamlined, the interior has become more spacious, there is also a “stove” and air conditioning.

Initially, the car of the 20 series was equipped with the same engine, from Toyota BJ, later it was replaced by the Toyota F engine with a working volume of 3.9 liters, which initially produced 105 hp, and then its power grew to 125 “horses”. Since 1956, Kruzak went for export.

Toyota Land Cruiser 40

The third generation Toyota Land Cruiser was born in 1960 and was produced until 1984. Externally, the car remained about the same as its predecessor, but technically the engineers did what they needed. Finally, a downshift appeared, and the engine range was expanded by diesel engines in volumes from 3.0 to 3.6 liters. The transmission is still the same 3-speed manual transmission, and since 1974 – 4-speed.

Toyota Land Cruiser 55

The fourth generation Toyota Land Cruiser lasted on the assembly line from 1967 to 1979. The developers paid special attention to comfort – the 55 series car has significantly increased in size. Under the hood, a new 4.2-liter 2F unit appeared, which generated 135 “horses”.

Toyota Land Cruiser 60

The fifth generation of the legendary Kruzak was produced from 1980 to 1989. The 60 Series SUV received an impressive wheelbase of 2,730 mm, which allowed it to accommodate the third row of seats in the cabin. Spring suspension made softer, and power windows and seats with lateral support added comfort to the car.

It was driven by a 4.2-liter gasoline engine or 4.0-liter diesel engine. Their power was the same – 137 horsepower. A pair of units was a 5-speed manual transmission, and in 1984 the first “automatic” in 4 gears appeared. In 1987, a small facelift was carried out – Land Cruiser 60 became available in new body painting options, got big wheels and new square-shaped headlights.

Toyota Land Cruiser 70

The sixth generation of the model came out in 1984. The 70 Series SUV was the direct successor to the Fortieth and the last truly off-road Land Cruiser. This indicates that when developing, the priority of engineers was to make the car passable and reliable, and not comfortable. It was set in motion by a 4.2-liter 131-horsepower diesel “aspirated” and a gasoline engine of 4.0 liters and a capacity of 228 hp.

Toyota Land Cruiser Prado

It was during this period that the first four-door version appeared, which received the well-known name “Prado”. By the 1990s, Toyota Land Cruiser Prado had become an independent model, the way we know it now.

Toyota Land Cruiser 80

The seventh generation of “Kruzak” was released in 1990 and was produced in 1997. Toyota LC 80 Series was simply unrecognizable – many rounded body lines made the exterior of the new items incredibly “fresh”. Alsothe SUV received electronically controlled locks of all differentials – two interwheels and an interaxle.

Under the hood of the car were placed 4.0- and 4.5-liter gasoline engines, as well as 4.2-liter diesel and turbodiesel engines, which produced 130 to 215 “mares”. Also on this SUV for the first time appeared ABS and two airbags.

Toyota Land Cruiser 100

The “Land Cruiser” of the eighth generation was produced from 1998 to 2007. The SUV remained reliable and passable thanks to the new frame with shock-absorbing elements. Unlike its predecessor, the Land Cruiser 100 received an independent suspension of all wheels and brakes, as well as improved noise and vibration isolation.

New units were found in the engine compartment: in-line “six” with a volume of 4.5 liters and “eight” for 4.7 liters. New diesel engines also appeared – a 4.2-liter 131-horsepower aspirated engine, as well as a turbocharged 204-horsepower and biturbo 250-horsepower engines of the same volume. A pair of engines was a 4-speed “automatic” or 5-band “mechanics”.

In 2003, Toyota conducted a restyling – “Sotka” acquired a new grille, headlights and bumpers, as well as some changes in the trim. Engineers changed the mounting of the steering rack and the threads on the steering rods and tips. Also appeared 5-speed automatic transmission.

Toyota Land Cruiser Cygnus

Particularly noteworthy is the version of Land Cruiser Cygnus, which entered the Japanese market in 1998. In fact, this is a representative “Sotka”, created taking into account the wishes of customers. The car was distinguished by four-section front optics, leather trim with walnut elements and a rear view camera.

Under the hood of the Cygnus was placed an uncontested 2UZ-FE 4.7-liter engine with a return of 235 horsepower. As part of the restyling in 2002, the SUV was replaced by a 4-speed “automatic” with a 5-speed one. Interestingly, Cygnus was shipped to Russia as the Lexus LX470.

Toyota Land Cruiser 200

Finally, the current generation of Toyota Land Cruiser 200. The SUV stood on the conveyor at the end of 2007 and boasted new engines: an improved 2UZ-FE with a VVT-i system and an “eight” 1VD-FTV. It was with these engines that Dvusotka was initially supplied to Russia, and 4.0 and 5.7-liter were also available in other markets.

To date, the 200th Kruzak is presented in Russia with a diesel 4.5-liter 249-horsepower and gasoline 4.6-liter 309-horsepower engines. Transmission – exclusively “automatic”, the drive, of course, is full.

Toyota Land Cruiser Prado

Toyota Land Cruiser Prado Available with a 2.7-liter 163-horsepower and 4.0-liter 249-horsepower gasoline engines, as well as a 2.8-liter 177-horsepower diesel engine. “Junior” gasoline is combined with both “automatic” and “mechanics”, the rest – only with automatic transmission.

Toyota Land Cruiser 300 (render)

As for Toyota Land Cruiser 300, he will lose engines V8 and will receive more environmentally friendly installations, among which there will be a hybrid. In the “base” the 300th Kruzak will receive 3.5 liter gasoline V6, and the top one will be a hybrid based on the same motor and electric motor. Where further the motor scale of the Japanese legend will develop, only time will tell.
