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 about flu, specifically H3N2, immune imprinting, and the way H3N2 had split 5-ways into variants that seemed to be lingering - which today draws parallels to SARS-CoV-2 Omicron variant fracturing.

Appreciate all the reposts Dr. Mackay. The many different RSV’s remind me of the existence of so many different Herpes viruses.

The H3N2 variance w/relation to SARS-CoV-2 also gives insight👍

So last example similar to the other flu strains such as the H5N1 w/clades 2.3.4.4, 2.3.2.1 w/subclasses?
