Virus and their Effects

Before looking at the Virus and their effects on the body, it is important to know what they are. They are viral particles that are formed by living things such as bacteria and viruses. They are known as viruses due to their ability to replicate themselves. When a virus replicates itself, it grows into anaerobic colonies until it has expanded to a point where it is very large in size. They have various effects on the body depending on the type of virus they have formed.

Some viruses affect the healthy cells of the body, while others have the effect of destroying the tissues and cells of the body. Some viruses can multiply within the human body within the lymphatic system without ever making contact with the uninfected cells. Other viruses can infect healthy cells and destroy them before making it to the lymphatic system or other parts of the body. They can invade tissues and enter the blood stream when a person has a compromised immune system and they can be spread through sweat, saliva, rashes and other secretions. Some viruses affect the body by destroying or damaging cells, producing symptoms such as fever, loss of appetite, headaches and swelling. There are other types of viruses that only affect certain types of cells, producing fever, diarrhea and general malaise and these include AIDS, Lassa, Epstein-Barr and Swine flu.

A virus is a submicroscopic infectious agent that replicates only inside the living cells of an organism. Viruses infect all types of life forms, from animals and plants to microorganisms, including bacteria and archaea.
