    Viruses evolve quickly, have the ability to insert themselves into our genomes, and we have very little defense against them!

    We humans certainly have defenses against a virus, but it is the ability of a virus to mutate quickly that is the real danger.

    we have no line of defence against the virus. If we get a global pandemic what with air travel etc. many would drop like flies.
