We have learned about viruses and bacteria in past lessons. This week over the break we are just going to revisit and learn more about viruses and what we can do to protect ourselves and our families.
SUMMARY: We learned A virus is a tiny, nonliving particle that invades and then multiplies inside a living cell.
I Viruses are not cells. They do not have the characteristics of ,.- organisms. ~ The only way in which viruses are like organisms is that they can multiply. Although viruses can multiply, their reproduction is different from the reproduction of organisms. Viruses can only multiply when they are inside a living cell. No organisms are safe from viruses. The organism that a virus multiplies inside is called a host. A host is a living thing that provides a source of energy for a virus or an organism. Viruses act like parasites (PA ruh syts), organisms that live on or in a host and cause it harm. Almost all viruses destroy their host cells.
