    It is actually the opposite scenario; diarrhea is a tactic used by viruses and bacteria to get out of your body to spread to infect other people and in many cases causes sever dehydration to people who ahve it.

    Dehydration is one of the most dangerous effects of diarrhea, especially in children and much older adults. Diarrhea is the body’s response to a bacterial, viral, or parasitic infection by trying to flush it out. In turn, the body also loses a lot of fluid and electrolytes (salts and minerals that affect water levels in your body, muscle movement, and other functions) which are vital. Once the body loses too many fluids and electrolytes it becomes dehydrated and cannot function properly. Water and electrolyte levels need to be monitored and replaced as soon as possible in order to minimize damage.
