Retraction

The Editor-in-Chief of Virology Journal and the authors of this article [1] acknowledge that the article does not provide the type of robust supporting data required for a case report and that the observations made are mostly speculative. As such, the article does not fulfill the criteria for a case report and does not meet the high standards expected of the journal. The authors and the Editor-in-Chief have therefore agreed to retract the article.
