VIRUSES AS HIJACKERSAbstract
Viruses are like hijackers. They invade living, normal cells, and replicate and create other viruses like themselves using those cells. This can destroy, harm, or change the cells and cause sickness. Various viruses in the human body invade other cells, such as the liver, respiratory system, or blood. Viruses are too small germs. Inside a protein matrix, they are made of genetic material inside of a protein coating. Different viruses can infect almost every type of body tissue from the brain to the skin depending on the virus ant the state of health of the individuals. Viral infections cannot be treated with conventional antibiotics (antibacterial-antibiotics); in fact, the use of antibacterial-antibiotics can cause serious side effects that worsen the viral infection in some cases. With a little help in the form of proper diet, hydration, relaxation, and rest, the overwhelming majority of human viral infections can be efficiently tackled by the body’s own immune system. As for the rest, treatment depends on the type and position of the virus infection and may include anti-viral antibiotics or other medications. In this article, we can focus on types, transmission, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of some common viral diseases.
