22. You mean "but very late into the infection...not clear whether infectious or dead particles"?

Yes, that is what I mean. Someone severly ill, late in the infection, not before they show symptoms. If you see someone barely able to stand or move having massive diarrhea or vomitting, best to avoid shaking their hand.

Infected Langerhans cells can certainly produce virus that infects other cells and tissues. They canít shed virus onto the surface of your skin. Sweat may be able to do that, but very late in infection. Even then, itís not clear whether virus found on the skin is actually infectious, or dead particles still full of the viral RNA.


Edited to add the clip as now am on computer. This backs up what I am saying, thank you for pointing it out.
