A fever is supposed to be one of the body's defense mechanisms against a virus. Raising body temperature can kill some viruses. So why isn't this response seen for all viruses, but just a few?

  • $\begingroup$ SE Biology is a question and answer site — not a discussion site or a site for floating ideas. It is concerned with the mechanisms of biological processes, not medical or social aspects of biology. For one of these reasons I think that your question on virology is off-topic here. Question of a medical nature might be on-topic at SE Medical Sciences. Otherwise you are advised to consult more appropriate reputable sources for such information, some of which are listed here. $\endgroup$ – David Mar 21 at 18:10
