Oops, no. I don't mean to be snotty here, but reactivation and replication are exactly the same thing.
Reactivation is the mechanism whereby a latent virus that has infected a host cell switches to a lytic stage, undergoing productive viral replication and allowing the virus to spread.

The issue is that even when a virus isn't replicating/reactivating , it's still quite busy inside your cells. Remember, it's doing its whole life, except for making babies.
Under normal circumstances, a latent, non-replicating virus, doesn't cause people any problems. Does it for us? maybe. Or maybe our immune systems are reacting abnormally to a latent virus.
Hopefully people like Dr. Prusty who are virus experts, will figure this out soon.
I probably didn't word it well, Dr Lerner had a word for 'viral particles', and they could also cause problems. Non permissive infection, I just had to look it up. I'm not sure his work has been replicated but he was quite successful in treating cfs.
I'm doing all this on my phone, so hard to look things up properly so I rely on my memory recall🤪.
Unfortunately I think alot of Dr Lerners theories etc went to the grave with him.
Don't feel snotty, it's good to push each other to find some answers. I'd say you are correct until the non permissive infection theory is replicated.
