# Prediction on Covid-19 virus mutations

Without any evidence, I have wondered it might be possible to predict the upcoming mutations of Covid-19 virus. I am further assuming people did so.

Has someone correctly predicted the mutated virus in the past year that today those became existant (like Delta variant, and so forth)?

I would be happy to have an explanation in layman's terms and citations to papers (if any).
