i still believe the virus may be fatal in the early stages but will generally fizzle out and become something similar to normal flu. For a virus to survive (which is what most things intentionally do!) the virus will want to spread as much as possible. A dead 'carrier' wil also kill the virus.. something which contradicts the virus living in the first place. To actually survive the virus will have to become 'nicer' and be less harmful and thus keep the carrier alive and spread to other people far easier.
