What is a virus? Simply put, a virus is a small infectious organism that lives on the exterior surface of other living organisms as well as in the human body. Viruses are t literally alive–although in a sense this is still a debatable issue of science; they simply re simply packets of viral genetic material. Some carry only this genetic material in single infected cells, others in multiple infected cells or in whole virus-like particles. They invade living host cells and then hijack the host’s cells, usually destroying their host cells in some sort of process known as replication.


A virus is generally a protein molecule of DNA or RNA. This DNA or RNA is enclosed within a coat of liposome membranes, which protect it from the invading viruses. On the other hand, an envelope virus is a type of microbial virus that envelops its own protein molecules inside an envelope. Then viral replication occurs by the bacterium which is enveloped within the envelope. Viruses can also be in an “active” state, where they replicate without the help of any outside source.

The role of viruses in disease progression is not fully understood. However, many viruses have been isolated that make common diseases like shingles, cytomegalovirus, Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), hepatitis B virus (HBV), and pirospagic fever infectious to humans. These viruses are usually spread by contact with bodily fluids or secretions. Examples of such fluids include blood, saliva, vaginal secretions, semen, breast milk, and body fluids (such as sweat). Sometimes, though, there is contact with an object contaminated by a virus, resulting in a condition known as contact immuno-compromise, or CA/VC.

Some of the most serious viruses are the herpes simplex virus (HSV) and the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). These two are usually associated with systemic antigens, which are antibodies produced in response to a virus infection. In the case of HSV, this type of immunoglobulin associates itself with a host cell and forms a circle or envelope around it, so that the virus is unable to break through. This allows the infected cells to develop symptoms, such as fever, swollen lymph nodes, and loss of energy and weight.

When Ebolopl virus infected cells in the eye, it could replicate within the eye quickly, causing significant damage. When the virus was injected into the blood, it was also able to replicate quickly, and thus caused severe infections throughout the body, including the lung, kidneys, liver, stomach, intestines, brain, and nervous system. There is a different strain of the Ebolopl virus that causes malaria. Although rare, this strain is called Plantaectis viride. This particular virus can infect both humans and animals, although in lower concentrations.

Although there are several different types of viruses that cause disease, they all share a common characteristic: they use living cells to reproduce themselves. This means that if a virus has the ability to attack a living cell, then it can infect any living cell. As a result, if you have one type of virus, but a different one that causes a different disease, you may have the two trying to fight off each other and produce a deadly combination.
