How did coronavirus become FIP?

FIP is caused by mutations in fecv. Although fecv mutation to FIPV is common, fortunately, only a small number of cats exposed to this mutant virus will be infected with FIP. Fecv is undergoing constant mutations, and several genetic forms of the virus may coexist in the same animal at…
