Expert Answer:

It depends on your definition to believe virus is immortal or not.
 
When virus is not immortal
 
The cells inside the host virus may die to ageing due to senescence.
 
When virus is immortal
 
The particular example we take is the attack of cold and flu every year. Every year we are prone to flu virus because of the mutataed characteristics of antibodies present inside which pass on to a new host that is not immune to every part of the virus. So, it is like they die and again return to the body.
