Viral diseases are caused by various types of viruses that can infect and reproduce within living cells. Some common viral diseases include the flu, colds, HIV/AIDS, measles, chickenpox, hepatitis, and COVID-19. Viral diseases can affect different parts of the body and can cause a wide range of symptoms, from mild to severe. Some viruses are highly contagious and can spread easily from person to person, while others are transmitted through contact with contaminated food or water, insects, or other animals.

Vaccines are available to prevent some viral diseases, and antiviral medications can be used to treat some viral infections. Treatment for viral diseases typically focuses on relieving symptoms and supporting the body's immune system while it fights off the infection.
