What Are Infectious Diseases?
Infectious diseases are caused by microorganisms such as viruses, bacteria, fungi or parasites and can spread between individuals.
Microorganisms that causes diseases are collectively called pathogens.
Pathogens cause disease either by disrupting the bodies normal processes and/or stimulating the immune system to produce a defensive response, resulting in high fever, inflammation and other symptoms.
Infectious diseases can be spread from one person to another, for example through contact with bodily fluids, by aerosols (through coughing and sneezing), or via a vector, for example a mosquito.
