    Hope I didn't scare you but there is really no way to positively identify a virus other than lab testing. Some telltale signs are chlorosis or breakdown of the plant tissue. Do you see ring spots or yellow streaks in the leaves? Sometimes thrips or cold damage can mimic the streaking effects on the flowers. Google orchid virus and see if any of the symptoms are on your plant. From a casual view it looks very healthy and the blooms in the forefront look healthy also. Isolation is the best thing you can do until you are certain its clean, otherwise it should be discarded and everything sanitized

    I would suggest this is, Cattleya Pulcherrima. C. lobata x C. purpurata.
