Deaf in one ear after down with virus, bones fused together. Can virus live in filth?

Hi I went to a friends house for dinnr, her kitchen was filthy, she had a filthy tea towel which she dropped onto the floor then continued to use this to wipe plates. A few days later i went down with a virus which has left me deaf in one ear, the hospital said the bones in the ear have fused together, do you think this was all due to my friend having a dirty kitchen and home, can a virus live in that filth. Thankyou
