Should I kill the strange plant to prevent infection?

A customer has a question and I hope we can get some opinions on it, thanks

I germinated three northern lights auto flower seeds. Right from the start one of the three plants has looked like it is variegated. How do I know if it is variegated or if it has tobacco mosaic virus. The other two look perfectly normal. Should I kill the strange plant to prevent infection?

Give it to sunlight water and leave it alone outside for a few days look for recovery. If it has not recovered within 2 weeks give some hydrogen peroxide can’t really distinguish dosage but I will apply sparingly. If no recovery leave separated and let it live. These plants recover from ailments regardless unless you work to kill it

It does look like mosaic virus which is very contagious. I think @Viktor7 makes a good point, I would put her outside and see how she does, but keep it away from your other plants.
