We're in it together
As seen from outer space, earth is an awesome little planet, teeming with tiny life forms (trees, people, dolphins, sponges, viruses, etc.
, etc...). We coexist, changing over time, adapting to one another. Our dna
, and that of other species, already has genes from viruses, acquired over thousands of years. If we find a vaccine for hsv
, then great! if that never happens, life will still be fine.
