Spread of viruses in our body

Most viruses do not cause diseases immediately after   their entrance into our bodies. First these undergo an incubation period of a few days dengue yellow fever etc, to several year during which these multiply in tissues lymphoid tissues, but in connective tissues, muscles.  Verves, etc, in certain case which is associated with routes of entrance but are not the actual sites of infection. After multiply in these tissues the viruses spread in the body reach their target sots mostly through blood, or through central nervous system in some case.
