Consider the phrase:
The video went viral
How could the concept of "viral" in the above meaning be expressed in Latin?
This is clearly a recent word, so there will not be a native one. Virus is a native Latin word, but, as far as I can see it does not mean virus in the biological sense (which is from where the properties of "viral" are derived, as far as I understand). The wikipedia entry for virus in Latin is titled virus biologicum.
There are several words for "quickly" which could be used for a combined term, e.g. celeriter, rapidus, velox. Amplus is another interesting term, which Wiktionary suggests to mean
- (figuratively, of force) impetuous, violent, strong
But simply translating viral with amplus seems not precise enough. Any ideas?
