What’s the difference between bacterial and viral infections?

Many human illnesses are caused mostly by bacteria or viruses. Some scientists think that bacteria, which are small single-celled creatures, have a relationship with plants. They live in a wide range of settings, from deserts to ice slopes, and are among the most successful living forms on the planet. While certain bacteria are beneficial to our stomach, such as aiding in food digestion, others can cause a range of diseases. Pathogenic bacteria are the germs that cause illness.
