Idle thought:

The English plural of "virus" is "viruses".

The Latin plural of "virus" would be "virūs", because it isn't second-declension, it's fourth - except that in Latin "virus" is a singulare tantum: it has no plural. "viri" is the plural of "vir", meaning "man". "Virii" is the plural of Virius, a family name.

Just so you know.


(All of this is in the nominative. "viri" is a form "virus" can take, but it's the genitive singular, "of (a/the) toxin".)
