In epidemiological and virological terms, it means that viruses naturally become more benign over time. This is congruent with Natural Selection theory. And it’s confirmed over and over in observation.
There is Antigenic DRIFT and SHIFT. Drift is new variants. This demonstrates that the virus is doing its natural thing to make itself more fit. That means, it becomes more easily transmissible while also becoming more benign so people shrug it off and go about their lives spreading it.
The most successful at this are rhinoviruses and the 4 other coronaviruses we call the common cold.
Shift is what happens when a single host is infected with two viruses and they combine RNA to become an entirely new strain less recognizable to memory T-cells. This is what causes the big ones.
