There are viruses that have a benefit. They contribute to the energetics of Gaia and of living creatures of all kinds. In a sense, they are an energetic intermediary that mirrors divine energies working through the energetics of consciousness at multiple levels of Gaia. This is complex to explain and to understand but in essence, represent a beneficial presence and not one designed for destruction, certainly not as a deadly pathogen that could be life-threatening to humans as part of a natural biome. The extraterrestrials learned about these organisms early on in their technological progress and have become master manipulators of genetics and used viral vectors for many purposes as well as for bioweapons of all kinds. That is the legacy you see in action today with the pandemic currently present globally, but there is a large cohort of many variants among viruses that are, indeed, natural and some quite beneficial, along with many that are a kind of relic, but harmless.
