Airborne Disease

Summarized by Plex Health
Last Updated: 07 May 2022

With the current COVID-19 pandemic, you might have become more conscious about the air you take a breath and the surface areas you touch. Disease transmission can take place in various means, however one of the most unpredictable method is through airborne transmission. Airborne diseases remain in dirt bits and respiratory droplets, which are eventually breathed in by other individuals. You do not need to be in the same space as a sick person to contract an airborne disease. Airborne diseases are microorganisms or viruses that are most commonly transferred via small respiratory beads. It could be a risk if you go into the restroom that a person coughed in mins in the past. This makes it possible for airborne diseases to contaminate larger varieties of people and harder to establish the causes because of a lack of person-to-person contact. Airborne transmission has differing capacities. Most diseases that spread out through the air are also contagious with bigger respiratory bead transmission. When people are within 6 feet of each other, this type of infection takes place.
