In brief: Fifth Disease

Parvovirus b19 strain is the only one to cause disease in humans and most everyone is exposed as a child.
Over 50% have had the disease at some point in their lives. If pregnant virus can cause infection and possible damage to the fetus. The visus can survive for up to 5 months in proper conditions but i doubt in the soil. Dog parvovirus does not cause disease in people, it is species specific.
