January 10, 2018 16:34
You have probably heard about Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), which is also called human herpesvirus 4. What many people may not know is that it’s one of the most common viruses: approximately 90% of adults have been infected with it at some point in their lives. Most people never find out they’ve been infected, especially if the infection occurs in childhood. Epstein-Barr virus causes mononucleosis (also called glandular fever), but EBV infection shows no symptoms in many cases. There is no vaccine against Epstein-Barr virus.
There are speculations that EBV is linked to chronic fatigue syndrome, but there’s not enough evidence to prove the connection.
