Question Banana Bunchy Top Virus?

Recently, as I've been searching for various banana-related thing on the internet, I stumbled across a disease known as Banana Bunchy Top Virus. As I began to read the symptoms, I noticed by Dwarf Cavendish Banana has some of them. However, the symptoms were only partial, as there were no yellowing around the leaf edges, and no Morse Code on the midrib.

Here's an image of the suspect plant's suspicious leaf.

Well, thank you very much. The reason that I was worried was because the leaves were getting narrow.

I don't see any symptoms of BBTV, and unless you are growing this plant in a banana-growing region with BBTV such as Hawaii, some parts of SE Asia, Southern India, Northern Australia, East Africa, then the chances of even having the opportunity for the plant to get BBTV are close to zero.

Nope, growing this plant in Canada, although the newest leaf has been a little narrow, to say the least. The most recent leaf like a spear tip.
