I was diagnosed with vestibular neuritis by an ENT, a virus caused it, can the virus stay forever and continue to attack the nerve? or it dies?

In brief: Many stay

many viruses that can cause this are so called stealth organisms, that lay dormant in your body and come out at times of stress like the ebstein barr and herpes virus.
when you get an attack, you take a course of steroids, I like to give valtrex (valacyclovir) as an anti viral
