Bacterial diseases are caused by pathogenic bacteria that cause bacterial infection. Tuberculosis, typhoid, cholera, tetanus, leprosy are other bacterial diseases. Tuberculosis caused by bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis kills close to 2. 2 million people every year, predominantly in Sahara African region.

Most bacteria do not cause harm, but a smaller percentage called pathogenic bacteria can cause a variety of illnesses ranging from urinary tract infection to strep throat.

Bacterial infections are treated with antibiotics, which are of two types- bacteriocidal if they can kill bacteria and bacteriostatic if they can prevent the growth of bacteria.  There are antiseptic measures adopted to prevent an incidence of bacterial infection by the method of sterilizing the needle and skin prior to piercing it with needle during injection. Surgical instruments and dental equipment are also sterilizing to prevent bacterial infection. In the toilets, disinfectants like bleach can kill bacterial growth and reduce risk of infection. Bacteria that is present in food are also killed through the process of pasteurization in case of milk, boiling or cooking it to a temperature above 73 degrees C.  Antibiotic drugs and medications are of no use to kill viruses.  In certain cases, it is difficult to know if a particular disorder or disease is through virus or bacteria. For instance, diarrhea or meniningitis  can be caused by either bacteria or virus.  A proper medical test can give the doctor conclusions about the line of treatment to follow
