GERMS? Pathogenic Organisms?

“Germs” is not a scientific term, but they are better understood as bacteria, viruses, or fungi because these are living organisms.
“Germs” is therefore a broad term we all use to refer to these microscopic organisms that can infect humans and animals.
The more proper term for these bad germs would be “pathogenic organisms.”
A virus is an infectious agent, smaller than bacteria, which requires the cells of a living organism to grow or reproduce. Viruses, need a living host to reproduce but can survive for limited periods outside a host.
