Why don't viruses respond outside a living body?


Viruses are just small pieces of RNA(Ribonucleic Acid) or DNA(Deoxyribose Nucleic Acid) wrapped in a protein layer that protect their genetic material. This means that viruses need a host cell to make them able to live as they cannot replicate on their own. So, viruses don't respond outside a living body.
