    Are ERVs that are unique to humans present in the entire human population? I couldn't find an answer to this question on the Internet.

    Not read all of this but I would hazard a guess that yes they are

    If the link gives a yes answer OK. If it indicates only some humans sorry I steered you wrong

    The existence of human endogenous retroviruses (HERVs) has been known for many years [4], but their abundance in the genome was not predicted by earlier studies.

    I thought ERV was "Emergency Response Vehicle" like police cars, fire engines, and ambulances.

    How is it possible for someone in the past to get infected with an ERV and now the ERV is in the DNA of every person on the planet?

    This is a duplicate thread, identical to your earlier thread. The answers you get will also be duplicates. I will ask the mods to combine these two threads for you.
    You're welcome.
