NEWSpecial Feature: Infectious Diseases
Infectious diseases are illnesses that occur when pathogens enter a host through the environment (via the air, water, etc.) or contact with animals or people, and cause a variety of symptoms. Three factors are necessary for an infection to occur: 1) pathogens, 2) routes of transmission and 3) a host.
Proper cleanliness and hygiene habits are even more important now that COVID-19 has permeated our lives. We asked some experts to talk about the three factors that lead to infection and what we should be aware of during our stay-home lifestyles.
