Infectious diseases are caused by pathogenic microorganisms, such as bacteria, viruses, parasites or fungi. Many organisms live in and on our bodies. They’re normally harmless or even helpful, but under certain conditions, some organisms may cause disease. the diseases can be spread, directly or indirectly, from one person to another. Some are transmitted by bites from insects or animals. And others are acquired by ingesting contaminated food or water or being exposed to organisms in the environment leading to infection.
Signs and symptoms vary depending on the organism causing the infection as well as the site and conditions where infection took place, but often include fever, fatigue, malaise, organ site infection and blood test imbalance. Mild infections may respond to rest and specific drugs mainly known as antibiotics or antivirals while some life-threatening infections or resistant type of infections may require hospitalization.
