I want to ask if the virus can disappear from the human body according to what I hear, it can’t disappear, the virus can be suppressed so that it is not active, is that correct?

Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. It is true that there is a virus that cannot completely disappear from the body. When the symptoms experienced by someone related to the virus subside, the virus actually does not disappear, but only inactive until sometime in the future, for example when the immune system weakens, the virus re-activates and causes symptoms again.
But this does not apply to all viruses. Examples of viruses that remain in the body are the herpes virus and HPV (human papilloma virus) with symptoms such as flaking or blisters and warts. For the corona virus that is epidemic, so far it is known that this virus includes viruses that do not live in the body. But considering that this virus is still new and the information about it is still very limited, it is not impossible that this information can change someday.
The point is that when the symptoms of the disease subside, there are some viruses that remain in the body, and some are completely gone. As a patient, all that needs to be done is to maintain the best immune system possible with regular exercise, adequate rest, eating fruits and vegetables, adequate fluid needs, and if symptoms recur, see a doctor immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
