A virus disease occurs when a harmful virus enters the human body and attacks the human body to reproduce and spread inside the body. The immune system of a human body tries to fight with the virus but if it is unable the virus spreads on from one cell to another thus, resulting in an infection. A virus disease could be short term or prolonged and the damage could also be severe in some cases. In some diseases the virus can cause life long infections despite the constant fight of the immune system of the body.
