Understanding Infectious Disease

Infectious diseases are caused by bacteria, fungi, parasites and viruses. In many cases, these diseases pass from one person to another. But they can also spread through insect and animal bites, or tainted food and water. Having a weakened immune system raises your risk for contamination. However, anyone can get these illnesses.

Some well-known examples of infections include the following:

  • Bacterial: Strep throat, urinary tract infections (UTIs)
  • Fungal: Athlete’s foot, yeast infections
  • Parasitic: Hookworms, ringworms
  • Viral: COVID-19, influenza
