Hepatitis A virus (HAV) is transmitted mostly through exposure to contaminated food or water, or through exposure to infected persons. This infection can occur sporadically or in an epidemic form, confers lifelong immunity and it is preventable by a safe and effective vaccine. Therefore, prevention strategies are crucial and could eradicate the infection if they were successfully : Rosa Coelho, Guilherme Macedo.

  This is the sixty-four-thousand-dollar question. The premise that coronavirus is highly contagious and can cause disease provides the justification for putting entire nations on lockdown, destroying the global economy and throwing hundreds of thousands out of work.

For those unfamiliar with medical jargon, the words infectious and contagious have distinct meanings. An infectious disease is one that is caused by a pathogen, such as a virus, bacterium, fungus or other parasites. A contagious disease is a disease which is easily transmitted by being in the vicinity of an infected person. All contagious diseases, such as influenza and measles, are infectious. Marek’s disease is highly contagious and can be transmitted from an infected bird to uninfected birds or through the air. Signs and symptoms: Paralysis of the legs and wings. In the classical form of Marek’s disease, the affected chickens lie on their side with one leg stretched backward and the other leg stretched forward.

Health workers may be infected by direct contact with blood, body fluids, urine, or stool of a patient with Lassa fever.Noroviruses, transmitted from person to person and indirectly via contaminated water and food, are highly contagious. Thus, the initial stage of Ebola is not very contagious since its victims experience only internal hemorrhaging.

Thus, a contagious disease is a subset of infectious disease that is especially infective or easily transmitted.Foodborne disease (also referred to as foodborne illness or food poisoning) is any illness that results from the consumption of contaminated food, contaminated with pathogenic bacteria, viruses, or parasites.
