A bacterial infection is a result of the release of inflammatory facilitators. A full blood count displays high numbers of neutrophils, which are a type of white blood cell that is responsible for messages sent to the immune system. Viruses are microscopic life forms that contain a capsule, core, nucleic acid strand, and protein, and these are simple organisms that depend on cells to flourish and multiply.

There are RNA viruses and DNA viruses. Viruses are more primitive, while bacteria are single-cell organisms. Bacterial infections enhance the neutrophil count, while viruses increase lymphocyte count. In a viral infection, widespread symptoms come to fruition, while bacterial infections are localized.
