:) no. senescence is a phenomenon only observed in multiellular organisms. viruses don't "age" - they don't even have a metabolism! but, i have an additional word on senescence, while I'm at it. it can be initiated by a number of processes, including: - telomer shortening over a certain threshold - outside factors like temperature or dryness (important for plants). now, the cells don't just die, but shut down in a highly regulated process, yielding all important things (like magnesium, in plants) to the organism it belongs to. thus, minimal damage is done to the rest of the organism - unlike apoptosis.
