Infectious diseases spread mainly due to four reasons

  • Direct contact- This means diseases transmitted from person to person (when an individual with the bacteria or virus touches, kisses, coughs or sneezes on a person who isn't infected.), animal to person (Being bitten or scratched by an infected animal, even pets), or from mother to unborn child (Some germs can move through the placenta or through breast milk. Germs in the vagina can also be transferred to the baby during birth.).
  • Indirect contact- Some bacteria and viruses can linger on inanimate objects like table, chair, books, doorknob etc., which when touched by another person gets transmitted. Some even get transmitted through air.
  • Insect bites- Some insects are carriers of bacteria or viruses like mosquitos, fleas, lice, ticks which cause diseases like malaria, dengue, lyme disease, etc.
  • Food contamination- Many germs get transmitted through contaminated food, for example, Escherichia coli (E. coli), is a bacteria that is present in or on certain foods which are undercooked or unpasteurized.
