Types of pathogen
Aim
To know the different types of pathogen
To be able to identify their features
Types
Bccteria
Bacteria are microscopic organisms. They come in many shapes and sizes, but even the largest are only 10 micrometres long - that's 10 millionths of a metre.
Bacteria are living cells and, in favourable conditions, can multiply rapidly. Once inside the body, they release poisons or toxins that make us feel ill. Diseases caused by bacteria include:
food poisoning
cholera
typhoid
whooping cough.
Viruses
Viruses are many times smaller than bacteria. They are among the smallest organisms known and consist of a fragment of genetic material inside a protective protein coat.

What is a pathogen?
A pathogen is a a bacterium, virus, or other microorganism that can cause disease.
And...

Viruses can only reproduce inside host cells and they damage the cell when they do this. A virus can get inside a cell and, once there, take over and make hundreds of thousands of copies of itself. Eventually the virus copies fill the whole host cell and burst it open. The viruses are then passed out in the bloodstream, the airways, or by other routes.
Also
Diseases caused by viruses include:
influenza (flu)
colds
measles
mumps
rubella
chicken pox
AIDs.
