There is evidence that viruses have always been with us and perhaps even before that.

Their characteristics have been spectacularly described since Wendell Stanley was able to crystallize them in 1935. They have subsequently been microphotographed and are currently being studied and detected thanks to the brilliant mind of Kary Mullis: Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) and its variants.

Today, humanity is in check, as the movie Outbreak (1995) supposes, due to one of the existing viruses (SARS-CoV-2), but others that have been “eradicated” according to the WHO must not be forgotten. Hence, Joshua Lederberg's sentence that titles this article and that will disturb the domain of man on the face of the Earth.
