?? too vague: Affected by rubella virus ??? No details. Rubella is harshest on the unborn, producing permanent injury to the eyes (vision), organs (poor function),nervous system ( small brain with delay and impaired performance). The affect on the older kid is relatively minor.Injury to the nervous system tends to be permanent and treatment supportive.
