Virus Double Stranded RNA Viruses Mnemonic!

Hi! I made up this little mnemonic for double-stranded RNA viruses that infect humans - there are only two, both in the Reovirus family: rotavirus and coltivirus (so named because it causes Colorado tick fever):

"I rode a colt to the Double-R ranch."

It reminds me that Rotavirus and Coltivirus are the only double-stranded RNA viruses I have to remember. Also, the Double-R ranch is on the Río Grande (Reovirus family). Hope it helps on a question one day!

Default the superdrug to heal RNA Viruses

This “Superdrug,” is promising indeed.

Article Source: MIT creates Superdrug that may be in the position to eliminate all viruses

With a lot of scientific breakthroughs going on i wouldn't doubt it if researchers nowadays can create medicines that can heal even the most toughest virus there is in the world. I I hope research such as these will continue to flourish, because it's for the benefit of mankind.
