Genetic variability and pandemics

Post by tylermarable » Fri Mar 23, 2018 2:48 am

I think I once heard of a theory that one virus will not wipe out the human race because about 5% will be immune to the virus because of genetic mutation and other factors resulting from human genetic variability. Is this true?
