The virus has an’ over coat’ , the envelope, which is necessary for the ‘ docking’ procedure when the virus infects a cell . In the other words, an HSV particle without the envelope in not infectious, since it cannot enter the cell.
How does HSV enter the body?
The virus gains entry into the body , not through intract skin, but through muscous membranes, such as oral region, vagina, tip of the penis, or the eye. The virus will first replicate ( make copies of itself) inside surface cells at these sites, eventually killing the infected surface cell . In a person with normal immunity . The immune system is quickly mobilized to contain the primary infection …..
