Is the flu an active virus or hidden virus?
Active. It will go directly to find a host cell and begin the steps of the lytic cycle to cause the host's cell to replicate itself (see the related questions for more about the lytic cycle). It does not stay "dormant" inside you to manifest symptoms later, an infection will produce symptoms right away if you are infected. Then once new viruses are made in the host cell, they will burst out and infect more cells and potentially more people.

Rabies is a virus that is hidden. If you get the rabies virus, it can be a very serious manner. Rabies can affect both animals and humans.
The common cold is in fact an active virus. Once the certain virus has infected a new host it immediately begins multiplying within the cells of the new host.
It is an active virus. Hidden viruses are viruses that don't go into action immediately and hide out for a while in your tissues. Once you are infected with a cold virus, you …usually become ill right away and once you are over that bout of the flu, the virus will be gone and not lingering around in hiding to come back with symptoms later. Other viruses that are hidden can lie dormant in your tissues for years.
it is an active virus! : )
An "active virus" is when a virus enters a cell and is active, it causes the host cell to make new viruses. This process destroys the host cell. The steps are first, the virus… attach's to a host cell. Second, the virus's hereditary material enters the host cell. Third, the virus's hereditary material causes the cell to make viral hereditary material and proteins. Fourth, new viruses from inside the host cell. Fifth, new viruses are released as the host cell bursts open and is destroyed. There are five steps on how a active virus functions inside a cell.
an active one
A hidden virus becomes active when like say if you get sick the virus would become active then because it has a greater chance of tearing down your system .
Influenza is an active virus.
Because the influenza viruses begin affecting you as soon as you are infected and start reproducing as soon as they are in the target cells of your respiratory system. Active …viruses do not invade and then remain dormant to produce new symptoms in the future (sometimes the distant future).
i think its active because there is a way to cure it. Ex swine flu... vaccines are up for grabs all over the place.
The " hidden " virus is called a provirus and it insets it's genetic material into the genome of the invaded cell so that the cell copies itself many times and copies the viru…s also. An active virus just invades and hijacks the cell immediately to reproduce the virus. The " hidden " type of virus does come out after a time and acts like a active virus then Google lytic cycle and lysoginy.
the mumps virus is an active disease so be careful!!!!!!
A hidden virus is known in the words in its name "HIDDEN virus". It hides and stays inactive. The active virus is also known in its name too "ACTIVE virus". The two viruses ha…ve different ways on spreading it own kind throughout the host or hosts.
A flu virus is an organism that causes a respiratory infectious disease in animals and man. This type of virus attacks the respiratory system and gives you the symptoms of the… flu. Influenza viruses such as these are not living organisms, like bacteria and fungi, but they are inanimate particles that can attach to our cells and make the cells start reproducing the virus instead of the cell's ordinary job for the host animal. They can not reproduce without a host's living cell. A virus is a "package" of proteins and DNA or RNA that can act as an organism to "hijack" your cells/the host's cells to replicate more packages like itself.
It is a Type A Influenza virus.
