Information about viruses

What you saw above is an example of one of the deadliest diseases and in this article we will provide you enough information you need to know about viruses and diseases.

Viruses have a DNA or RNA structure that contains a protein coat, a caspid, and a lipid membrane, also called an envelope.

Viruses can infect cells and use cells to create more viruses.

Viruses attach to a host's cell, then injects its DNA or RNA into the cell. Afterwards, the cell divides into more cells that contains the virus DNA or RNA.

Viruses are much smaller than the cells they infect.

Viruses are not cells because they cannot reproduce on their own, cannot move, do not eat, and do not contain any cellular structures.
