What is the difference between a virus subsiding and disappearing?
Is there a difference?

subside means to decrease in some way. disappear means to not exist anymore. if you take subsiding to its extreme, it becomes disappeared. Basically, the thing has to subside (decrease in number) before it can become non-existent. Just a matter of how you choose to look at things, though. Same basic idea.

It doesn't matter if it's a virus or an emotion or a high tide - if it subsides it merely sinks for a while, if it disappears we'll never see it again.
