My black pepper plant has been attacked by YELLOW MOTTLE VIRUS disease or MOSAIC VIRUS DISEASE. How can I control that virus? Thank you.

There is no known cure for active infections of yellow mottle virus or mosaic virus. The best you can do is to prevent the disease from spreading and infecting healthy plants and new plantings. Control the insect pest vectors with preventive spraying of repellent insecticide like neem oil and build soil fertility. Nutrient density helps plants resist pests and diseases.
