User: can you identify the key factors taht will make it more likely that infection will occur?

Weegy: nfections are started by tiny bacterial or viral microorganisms that have somehow found their way into your body. Most likely it came from an open sore or incision made by surgery. [ When these microorganisms get into your bloodstream or body, they find cells to attach to. This happens with a lock-and-key type of connection that occurs between the surfaces of the infectious microorganisms and your cells. Once there is a connection, an infection can start via multiplication. For the infection to continue, the microorganisms produce at a faster rate than the body's immune system can handle or it produces at a static rate that makes an infection chronic. If your body is able to, it can fight off the infections on its own and keep them from spreading. Read more: How Does an Infection Occur? | eHow.com ]

key factors that will make it more likely that infection will occur
Weegy: nfection is a process in which bacteria, viruses, fungi or other organisms enter the body, attach to cells, and multiply. To do this, they must evade or overcome the body's natural defenses at each step. [ Organisms that can cause illness are all around us: in air, water, soil, and food, as well as in the bodies of animals and other people. Infection occurs when some of them get past a series of natural defenses. Those defenses include: Skin: The skin physically blocks germs, but may let them in if it is cut or scraped. Coughing deeply: This expels germs from the lungs and breathing passages but may be less effective for weak, sick, or injured people. Bacteria: Called "resident flora," harmless bacteria normally are present in some parts of the body. They compete with harmful germs and crowd them out. But they can be weakened or killed by medications, allowing harmful germs to thrive and cause illness. Read more: Infection - body, viral, causes, How Does Infection Occur?
