Solution

"We can treat an infectious disease by killing microbes".
An infectious disease is caused by pathogens such as bacteria, protozoa, fungi, worm and viruses. When these pathogens enter a body, they result in a certain dysfunction in the body. Such symptoms can be treated by taking medicines; however, medicines do not necessarily remove the pathogens.
To treat an infectious disease, the microbes have to be killed by taking medicines that either kill the microbes or block the microbial synthetic pathways without affecting the host cellular pathways.
