Viral infection

A viral infection is an illness caused by the invasion and multiplication of viruses within the body’s cells. Viruses are tiny infectious agents that can only replicate inside living host cells. When a virus infects a host, it uses the host’s cellular machinery to reproduce and spread, often leading to various symptoms and health problems. Viral infections can affect many parts of the body and range from mild to severe.
