Control of Communicable Diseases

A communicable disease is an infectious disease (such as influenza or tuberculosis) that is transmissible by contact with an infected individual to a non-infected individual. This can be done through a variety of methods: respiratory droplets, the contamination of surfaces, the ingestion of contaminated food or through a disease vector such as a mosquito bite.

Individuals can reduce their risk of contracting or transmitting an infectious disease by following the below steps:

Washing your hands for 20s

Covering coughs or sneezes

Disinfecting high touch surfaces regularly, such as door handles

Practicing good hygiene when handling food

Avoiding spoiled food

Receiving available vaccinations for disease immunization
