If i reheat my hamburger (which i have left out of the fridge for 5 days) will it kill the bacteria?
Can i still eat it?

Some bacteria leaves behind nasty contaminates that are not killed by heat. The best way to understand this is poison bacteria poop. I'd avoid it, or at least make it pass the smell test before heating and eating.

It may kill bacteria. Actually there may be no bacteria left living at this point.
What heating will not do is destroy toxins left from the bacteria and toxins will make you just as ill, or worse than the bacteria would.
Toss out that burger. NO burger is worth getting sick over.

Five days! seriously! Throw it away.

No no no by now it is so toxic with bacteria and the poison from the bacteria reheating it will only concentrate the poison and kill you faster

Reheating does not fix spoilage. It is spoiled. Throw it out.

Were I you I wouldn't. While high heat will kill most bacteria, it won't kill a lot of viruses. And those little guys can kill you faster than any bacteria can.

I am afraid not but I'm not definitely sure usually burgers or cafes would not reheat burgers but throw them away on that day.

No, that would probably kill you or make you very sick

YOU LEFT A HUMBUGER OUT OF THE FRIDGE FOR 5 DAYS? No, throw it out.
