- Interactions between rhinoviruses and co-circulating respiratory viruses have been shown to shape virus epidemiology at the individual host and population level.
Very cool. Can't wait to see the implications of this. With my meager half a bachelor's degree I see 2 potential consequences for this:
1. rhinovirus is utilized to suppress covid replication in severe cases
2. The two viruses interact in a phenomenon called genetic shift, and covid picks up genes from rhinovirus that potentially make it more virulent.
