Does the organism preduce enzymes that are destructive to body tissues?somebody please tell me!!!Barmah forest infection damages the body by infultrating a cells membrain, it then goes on to hijack the cell's reproduction system and make copies of the virus cell, those copy then repeat these process to countless other cells in the body... this process causes the infultraited cell to die and rupture, releaseing deadly toxins in to the body.
