Cute little thing, this virus.

Those beads on her jacket, they're how she grabs t-cells and slips inside. We know how this works and we know how to stop it from working.

Once in, she uses the normal life process of the t-cell to make children – potentially thousands of virus babies that spread through your blood and lymphatic system to infect and destroy more t-cells, and more until your body is left defenseless.

Along comes the simplest infection, you're done for. No need to be a virologist to stay alive.
