The spread of the corona virus is so massive and fast that people are starting to be literate to live cleanly and to protect the environment so that it does not become a den of bacteria or viruses.
Bacteria and viruses are types of pathogens that can cause dangerous infections. It is difficult to distinguish between viral and bacterial infections because they have many similarities.
For example, these two types of infection can be spread through coughing, sneezing, and close contact with an infected person or surface.
Either viral or bacterial infection, both can trigger acute and chronic infections or latent infections that don’t cause initial symptoms.
Generally, viruses and bacteria can cause infections of the respiratory or digestive tract.
In people with flu or colds, for example, bacterial and viral infections can cause a stuffy, runny nose, sore throat, and fever.
Viruses that often cause disease with these symptoms are of many types. However, the most common are rhinovirus.
In some cases, secondary bacterial infections can also occur during or after a cold.
Common examples of secondary bacterial infections include sinus infections, ear infections, and pneumonia.
