What is a viruses method of movement?

Question asked by: knowitall

Viruses do not move in the sense of movement that we apply to living creatures.

Rather they are spread by the host system, thus if they get in the blood supply of a creature for instance then this carries them along.

Part of the debate around viruses is exactly around whether they count as being alive or not as they do not exhibit all the characteristics of life.
