Question and answer
How can you educate others effectively about the routes of transmission for major types of pathogens?
Educating by telling the Indirect transmission occurs when an agent is required to transfer the pathogen from an infected host to a susceptible host. The agent may be either animate or inanimate. [ Animate transmission agents, which are referred to as disease vehicles, include air, water, and food. Inanimate agents also include fomites, which are objects on which the pathogen has been deposited.
Examples of fomites are toys, clothes, bedding, or surgical instruments. Animate, or living, agents of disease transmission are most often insects, mites, fleas, and rodents. Living agents of transmission are referred to as vectors. Diseases that are spread via indirect contact in hospitals are specifically referred to as nosocomial infections. ]
