Aren’t both H.pylori and EBV associated with gastric lymphoma?
The only thing I can think of is that HIV is a (+)-sense single-stranded RNA virus that relies on an RNA dependent DNA polymerase (reverse transcriptase) to synthesize DNA.
according to [medbullets link](https://step1.medbullets.com/step1-microbiology/104196/rna-viruses_) ns ss RNA must carry RNA dependent RNA polymerase (so that is out).
also, according to medbullets there are very few ds RNA viruses, so "most likely" will be ss. Also, RNA-dependent DNA polymerase = Reverse Transcriptase. Since HIV is a ss ps RNA virus with RT, they've described an HIV cousin. not sure beyond this.
Can’t think of any retroviruses outside of HIV and HTLV and they’re both +ssRNA
