Difference between viral and bacterial infection

Hello everyone! ^__^

How would you differentiate a viral infection from bacterial infection? @_@

Viral infections are widespread and involve a number of mucosae simultaneously or in quick succession
Bacterial infections are localized and cause site specific symptoms

A virus may produce clear or cloudy mucous
Discharge is watery
A bacterial illness typically causes colored phlegm (green, yellow, bloody or brown-tinged)
Discharge is thick

Viral infections usually clear up pretty quickly
They last for 2 - 10 days
Bacterial infections have a longer duration of illness
They last for more than 10 day

Viral infection may or may not cause a fever
A bacterial infection will cause fever
That's all!
