Hey student.
 
Virus are living organisms inside a host cell. But virus is not classified along with bacteria or fungi because they having an inert crystalline structure outside the living cell. They are inert outside their specific host cell and cannot multiply of their own because they lack cellular machinery to use its genetic material.
