Ouch! I just got bit by a mosquito!
Doctor I have been developing rashes and I don't feel good. What's wrong with me?
You seem to have gotten the Ross River Virus.
Oh no! Is there a cure or treatment?
Sorry, there is no cure or treatment, but it should only last around a couple of months.
Can I at least know how it infects my immune system?
Following the bite of an infected mosquito, RRV particles infiltrate the first line of defense, the skin, and attach to a cell surface receptor.
The virus then penetrates and is uncoated within the cell where primary replication occurs in the skeletal muscle
On behalf of the antibody force I need you to stop what you're doing!
RRV then enters the blood, where clearance is mediated principally by neutralizing antibodies
Yeah I don't think so! I'm getting cleared through!
