Abstract

Viruses are subcellular particle of nucleic acid and proteins that do not have their own metabolism. Virus classification is based on individual biological, biochemical, morphological, and genetic criteria, but for the sake of simplification, all viruses are broadly classified as either enveloped or non-enveloped viruses. Virus transmission is possible via several vector routes.
