A friend of mine grow H. papilio and Hippeastrum hybridum intermingled in
the ground, H. hybridum was virus laden, they were both sent to a virus
testing facility, H.hybridum tested postive for virus and H. papilio tested
negative.  They were grown together for five years or more.

It has been said that H. papilio seems resistant to virus, some suggest
that it doesn't demonstrate visual symptoms.  I have never seen H. papilio
with any virus symptoms, I asked Dr. Alan Meerow and he has never found a
papilio that demonstrated symptoms of virus either.  Hopefully this post
catches his attention and he can add his two cents.
