Expert Answer:

The signs and symptoms of any disease depend on the organ or tissues from the targets of the pathogens that cause the infectious diseases. The pathogens damage the targeted organs or tissues which in turn give rise to signs and symptoms. For example, if the lungs are the targets, then symptoms will be cough and breathlessness. If the liver is targeted, there will be jaundice.
