Infecting Virus is negated and Tribe-Infecting Virus is destroyed. Also, you cannot use My Body as a
Shield against cards whose effects will not destroy a monster right away, so you cannot use My Body
as a Shield against Jigen Bakudan, Ekibyo Drakmord, After Genocide, Magical Hats, Steel Scorpion,
Toon Monsters, Thunder Nyan Nyan, Gradius' Option, Summoner of Illusions, Limiter Removal, Call
of the Haunted, Premature Burial, or Autonomous Action Unit.

monster right away, such as Earthshaker, Barrel Dragon, Acid Trap Hole, or Time Wizard.
4. You cannot use My Body as a Shield against monsters with continuous effects such as Kotodama
or King Tiger Wanghu.
5. You cannot activate My Body as a Shield during the Damage Step, so you cannot use it against a
