Haydak - חַיְדַּק

Pronunciation: Hay·dak

Literal translation: Bacteria


What's the difference? חַיְדַּק (bacteria) versus נְגִיף (virus)


Bacteria can reproduce on their own and can be treated with antibiotics, while viruses cannot survive without a host. Vaccines have been developed to prevent and reduce viruses since antibiotics are usually not effective.
