Not exactly with no signals, no.
When the virus replicates it has to write on disk.
Thus unusual disk activity should catch your attention. This is the way i detected ebola 2 back in '97. Then VirusZ took care of it.

As peecees constantly hit the disk i felt a lot more secure on the miggy, really.

True viruses can be more dangerous on the Amiga but they are also much less resilient. You can't e.g. get rootkits that will resist eradication.
