Infectious diseases are caused by germs (bacteria and viruses). A bacteria is a microscopic creature consisting of a single very simple cell which does not have anything complex like a nucleus inside it. A virus is a tiny microscopic infectious agent that can only increase in numbers (multiply) inside living cells of a plant or animal. Bacterial and viral infectious diseases spread directly or indirectly from person to person, for example through coughing up germs. They are all conditions that you catch.
