Once it's there....: It's there....as I mentioned in the other post....this virus basically hides out in the dorsal root gangliia of the body. Depending upon which dorsal root chooses to "release" the particles on any given instance is what determines where in the body you'll have a breakout but once it's there.....it's completely penetrated.....that's true for any viral entity. Bacteria and fungi are different.
