Tomato Leaf Damage

I believe I have the Chlorosis virus infecting my tomato plants. This was due to my growing cabbage in with the toms -- this started the whitefly. I found out about this on the net. Could you please help me? What do i do i don't want my tomatoes to all go this way only one plant is so far affected.

Please and Regards,

Usually chlorosis is associated with iron deficiency, though I have seen it also occur when magnesium and manganese are lacking. Whitefly is usually found in greenhouse situations, but if they are attacking your tomatoes you should be able to handle with insecticdal soap or an organic oil spray like Wipeout or organocide
