You now know viruses are parasites… They are complex which can explain why it is hard to treat many times… Can you remember when there were hardly any viruses in the US? Compare it to today and we have old ones, new ones and varying degrees of viruses too!

Parasite vs Virus Difference

What is the difference between a virus and a parasite? i know, probably a dumb question! lol
by Humaworm
No question is ever dumb. Viruses are different in that they have no single cell in their structure – they are parasites that do not themselves possess a cell.
In other words, viruses, rather than being cells that can only replicate upon entering another cell, viruses do not even possess a cell until they enter (infect) another cell.
I hope this is making sense – it is hard to explain. They are submicroscopic parasites that can replicate once they have invaded a cell – whereas other microscopic parasites are single cell structures to begin with.
I hope this helps!
