Interesting question but one has to remember that Adam & Eve were created perfect in body.
Being perfect they were immune from any sickness and diseases. Their bodies were completly able to fight off anything that would have made them sick much less to the point of death.
If they had stayed faithful to God they would still be alive today. That was God's plan and it would have worked if Adam had not disobeyed God's simple command.
So those germs did exist then and like everything God created, it had some purpose even if we do not understand that now.
We know that virus's can mutate and have done that down to this day.
Maybe they were not as dangerous at that time and even after Adam & Eve sinned and started the long period of growing old it may have been harmless to all humans for a period of time. Who knows?
But the point is that all life that exist now on earth, did exist then, but the planet and humans were under different circumstances also in the past.
