The phrase "whether deemed living or not" is bizarre.


That just has to do with the textbook definition of "living". The common definition is that an entity has to have both a metabolism and the ability to reproduce on its own to be considered living. Viruses can't reproduce on their own, they need to hijack a living cell to do that. And both viruses and prions have no metabolism, they cannot absorb nutrients and create energy.
