In brief: Immune System
It is our immune system that really and equally impedes the advances of these pathogens, so make sure, your immune system is not compromised by alcohol, smoking, lack of sleep, improper diet, too much sugar intake, diabetes and so on.

In brief: Infection
Your body reacts to infections in multiple ways.
It all depends on your immune system. If your immune system is weak you will be prone to infections. Viruses are generally opportunistic organisms. They attack when your guard(immune system) is low.
