On the trail of viruses

Dear Sir or Madam,

Winter is here – at least in the northern hemisphere. There is winter solstice and the shortest day of the year as well as the astronomical beginning of winter today. And winter is not only bringing cold to us, but also colds and the flu that are caused by viruses. We are looking for the trails of these and other viruses in our current interview.

Enjoy reading, have a nice 21 December, a happy holiday season and a good start into 2017!
