Complex organisms tend to evolve over time into even more complex organisms; with even longer gestation periods.

Simple organisms, like viruses, tend to reproduce faster because they are "simpler". They also tend to devolve into even simpler (and deadlier) strains by lopping off parts during a mutation that encourages even faster reproduction.

As the virus is allowed to reproduce unchecked, the chance of a "bad" mutation increases.
