12. Viruses are simpler than bacteria in structure and usually not even really considered a living organism. They possess the same ability as bacteria to clone themselves and reproduce rapidly. Viruses can only survive by taking over a host cell in another creature so they are constantly looking for animals and humans to infect.

An invaded cell loses its ability to function normally and is forced to produce viral proteins and create more clones of the invading virus. Once these clones are in place, the virus forces the host cell to rupture which releases all the clones to infect other host cells which cause the disease to spread.
