Bacteria is everywhere

Bacteria is Everywhere….

By Simon Chute


So what is bacteria

So what is Bacteria??

  • Tiny little cells that can cause diseaseand infections

  • They can only be seen with a Microscope

  • They have a tail so that they can move around

  • Some have a sticky jelly surrounding them so that they can stick to things like your hands

  • They can copy themselves once every 20 minutes

  • They come in 3 different shapes: Spheres, Rods and Spirals


Where do they grow

Where do they grow?

  • They can live in almost any condition such as hot water springs, cold water or soil, and salty water

  • One type of Bacteria lives in water that drains from coal mines which is very acidic, and can have a pH of 1.


What problems can they cause

What problems can they cause?

  • They can cause many diseases such as Pneumonia which is a lung infection which means that the bacteria got into your lungs and caused the air pockets in your lungs to fill up with fluid or puss. Some of the things that will happen because of the fluid build up could be a cough, trouble breathing, a fever, and the chills.

  • Another disease is Strep Throat. Strep throat is a bacterial disease that happens in the throat. The throat becomes inflamed and the throat gets irritated so you start to cough, and later that leads to a very sore throat. It is a very curable disease but the symptoms are only fever, and a sore throat so most people think that its just a common cold and don’t go for treatment when they really do need it.

  • Wash hands frequently with soap

  • Cough into your sleeve, not your hand
