It needs a host cell(living cell) to replicate the virus's DNA

A host, i believe (don't trust this answer completely because i am not sure)

A virus need to "hijack" a living cell and "make" that cell make virus parts. The parts are assembled and when the cell is full, the cell breaks open and the cell dies. The virus finds more cells to "hijack".

Multiply. A virus needs energy to multiply.

Your question does not give enough information. What are "which"? Should there be more to the question?

A Virus must invade a host cell in order to reproduce. What people commonly mix up with them is bacteria which has no need to

The virus that begins to multiply immediately is called a lytic virus.

Viruses can only multiply (reproduce) within a host cell. The type of host cell is dependent on the virus' host range.

A virus doesn't really need anything to survive. It can last forever frozen. But to produce more of itself it needs a living cell.

generally bacteria and viruses multiply rapidly in colder environments rather than hot conditions.so,cold virus need hot

more bacteria to reproduce with warmth and oxygen :)

No they actually multiply by taking over a cell's functions.

one virus bacterium will multiply in to 16 million in 12 hours one virus bacterium will multiply in to 16 million in 12 hours

Viruses do not directly need energy. The virus takes control of the host cell in order to replicate. The host cell's own metabolic machinery is used to synthesize the components of new viruses. The virus itself is passive.

You need Electron microscopes in order to examine or view a virus because you can't see it from ordinary microscopes

You can multiply the first two numbers, then multiply the result with the third number. Or multiply in any other order.You can multiply the first two numbers, then multiply the result with the third number.

Bacteria are living, complete cells. Viruses are not alive and technically can consist only of DNA or RNA. They need hosts to multiply.

The capsid of the cell helps the virus to infect host cells as well as multiply quickly.

Bacteria are MUCH BIGGER than viruses. A virus is a bacteriophage. When the virus infects the bacteria, the virus injects the bacteria with it's DNA code. The virus' DNA code starts to multiply inside the bacteria, which then bursts, and the infected bacteria cells multiply over and over again.

You can get a virus by going on websites that contain avirus. But you would not know when the virus is in your desktops it can multiply depends what kind of virus is it when the computer slows down or something else, have a scan made by your computer when it is found delete or clean the virus.

No, a virus cannot catch a virus and become ill. A virus is a shell of protein containing DNA. A virus works by getting into a cell and "reprogramming it" to multiply and start to take of the organism. A virus cannot infect another virus because viruses are not cells themselves.

Yes..... You need an ANTI-VIRUS to do it.
