I'll post a couple of old blog pieces (they may or may not still stack up today) about some of the other respiratory viruses we live with all the time, their names, taxa and numbers.

A little about RSV being more than one 'virus'. If we were to apply the terminology, surveillance and analysis to all these other respiratory viruses that we have to SC2 - my goodness, what a wondrous level of new things we'd learn.

Something about the different respiratory viruses back when rhinoviruses flared up in 2020, even though NPIs had dropped the circulation of many other resp viruses.

A little something about the best method to sensitively detect the virus inside us, PCR
(my blog has lots of PCR-based bits & pieces if you want to search & read more about this excellent tool that many armchair experts have never used & know zero about).

One about a rarely discussed feature of many/most viruses-if they grow enthusiastically enough, they spill over into our blood. Even 'common cold' rhinoviruses.
