Pathogen is an organism that causes infectious diseases.

Examples are: Bacteria, Virus, Fungi, etc.

btw Virus are harder to treat because to kill the virus, you need to kill the cell itself ;)

Pathogens are micro organisms which cause diseases and they release toxinswhich can lead to symptoms suchas headaches or flu however your body gets rid of them by your white blood cells making antibodies and antitoxins that destroy the pathogen so you dont feel ill anymore :)
