Many others would be greatly improved by this, but not eliminated. All viruses
work by injecting their genes into a cell and taking over its molecular machinery,
using it to produce more viruses. This is part of what makes viral illnesses so hard
These viruses can be eliminated by molecular-level cellular surgery. The
required devices could be small enough to fit entirely within the cell, if need be.

Biologists worry that the virus could infect seal species around the world, since
distemper virus can spread by aerosols — that is, by coughing — and seals live
in close physical contact. So far its mortality rate has been 60 to 70 percent.
