There seems to be an awful lot of confucion surrounding wether or not
Virii are living things. I just read on a website
http://www.herpesdiagnosis.com/herpes.html that "...herpes simplex
virus type 2. These viruses are "ancient " living forms that infect
most animal species..."
My understanding is that Virii, being "unliving" are not like
bacteria, and cannot be treated with antibacterial agents like
amoxycillin, Penicillin, or Eurythromycin. They respond to
ANTIVIRALs, Acyclovir, Famvir, Norton : ).
Is there overlap? Does an Antiviral/Antibacterial agent exist? If so,
what is it?
