According to the World Health Organization, of the top 10 threats to global health, more than half of them are infectious disease challenges. (Source: Contagion Live).
The CDC estimates that between October 2019 and April 2020, between 39,000,000 and 56,000,000 people in the U.S. had the flu and between 24,000 and 62,000 people died. (Source: CDC).
Infectious diseases are illnesses caused by infectious microorganisms like bacteria, viruses, parasites, and even sometimes fungi. These diseases are often spread between persons, either directly or indirectly, and can sometimes even be spread by animals and insects.
Viruses are tiny germs that can cause many infectious diseases like the common cold, influenza, and others. They can also be the cause of more severe illnesses like HIV/AIDS, smallpox, and Ebola.
There are a few ways that COVID-19 can spread. The first is by touching an object or surface that has the virus on it and then touching your mouth, nose, or even your eyes. For the most part, however, COVID-19 is spread from one person to another through respiratory droplets when a person coughs, sneezes, or even talks too closely to another.
While masks may not be effective against every disease, they can help to prevent the spread of some diseases that are passed through respiratory droplets. By covering up your mouth or nose, you are reducing the risk of the disease leaving or entering into your body through these areas. Always consult your doctor before deciding to wear a mask if you have concerns or a medical condition that may make the wearing of a mask for a long period of time dangerous.
