They cannot produce in itself and can only reproduce inside of the host cells. Because both pathogens differ in how they cause infection, the diseases caused by viruses contrast with bacteria. For example, viruses can cause:
Although both bacteria and viruses are wholly different in size and function, you can prevent many of their infections with few simple steps.
