Highly Infectious Membrane-Cloaked “Virus Clusters”
NIH researchers have found viruses that cause severe stomach illness—including the one infamous for widespread outbreaks on cruise ships—get transmitted among humans through membrane-cloaked “virus clusters” that exacerbate the spread and severity of disease. The discovery of these clusters marks a turning point in the understanding of how these viruses spread and why they are so infectious.
