A communicable illness refers to an infectious disease like the flu or tuberculosis that can spread from an infected person to someone who is not infected. This transmission can occur through various means, including respiratory droplets, contact with contaminated surfaces, consuming tainted food, or even through a disease carrier like a mosquito bite.
You can reduce their risk of contracting or transmitting an infectious disease by following the below steps:
Washing your hands for 20 seconds.
Covering coughs or sneezes with your elbow.
Disinfecting high touch surfaces regularly, such as door handles.
Practicing good hygiene when handling food.
Avoiding spoiled food.
Receiving available vaccinations for disease immunization.
