Ill correct my spelling this time...arggg

Rabies..Rhbado virus is immunologically shielded because it is covered in a
phospholipid membrane derived from the outer cell  wall of the host cell in
which the
viral nuclearic acid was synthesised. This outer layer not only shields
antigenic determinants but also by degree confers selfness.

Rabies is also a 'slow' virus and has the characteristics of evoking only a
week immune response.
