In brief: In general

In general, low grade fevers are usually viral, whereas persistent higher fevers indicate a possible bacterial infection.
That being said, any infection, bacterial or viral may mount a fever response in the body that could be low grade or high as well. No guarantees when it comes to fever and diagnosing the cause of an infection.
