I have heard that Pacific oysters can catch Oyster Herpes Virus. Is this a threat to human health.

Oyster Herpes Virus (OsHV-1 µvar) affects Pacific oysters and can result in high rates of shellfish mortalities. There are however no human health implications of eating Pacific oysters exposed to or infected with Oyster Herpes Virus.
