In brief: Ecology of viruses

Viruses, like many other living things, are just looking for a 'home'.
All of life is like that -and we can find viruses affecting not just humans but many other species of animals, even plants! The question is, 'is this virus causing a disease'? That is what doctors are for -to help you determine when to step in and take action. If you are concerned about a certain virus, ask more questions.
