Nature:

Virus diseases are widespread diseases in nature caused by viruses and found in humans, animals, birds, fish, insects, plants, protozoa, and even bacteria. In man, virus diseases include smallpox and chicken pox, measles, herpes, influenza, German measles, mumps, poliomyelitis, viral hepatitis, endemic encephalitis (transmitted by ticks, mosquitoes, and other insects), trachoma, and yellow fever. The incubation period of virus diseases is from two or three days (influenza, certain kinds of encephalitis, and others) to 30 days and longer (rabies, epidemic hepatitis, and others). Infection can occur via air, food, milk, water, or various objects, and through the bite of bloodsucking arthropoda (mosquitoes, sand flies, and ticks).
