The main thing here is ----- evidence. If you suspect virus, then it will be necessary to have a photo of some other cases which look exactly like your case.

Otherwise - also consider that sucking insects that pierce holes in the leaf to gain food/nutrients will create features like this on your plant.

Dominiccg12, if you REALLY want to test for virus, you can invest in Agdia test kits
On the pricey side, but if you want to be sure, testing is the only way you are going to find out - appearance is so inaccurate that you'll do better by flipping a coin.

Since this plant was a bag baby and it is now planted in moss, I would consider edema a possible cause of the spots.

I agree with all of the previous posters that it does not appear viral, but the only way to be sure is to test the plant.
