I find it interesting how HSV basically has evolved alongside humanity as a “perfect” virus — almost totally hidden from the immune system

I guess we should be thankful that it’s effects are comparatively benign, given it’s chronic nature and virality.

Some variation of the anthropic principle maybe comes into play here. If it had more deleterious effects, we may not be here to make these observations.

It's nr 2 variant is a lot less pleasant apparently, not to mention how it would affect dating prospects and such, so it's rather sad that science has no solution for these and many other viruses. What I don't understand as a lay person is the extremely slow rate of progress against viruses like these - imagine computing as a field progressed as slowly as this...
