Descriptions of infectious diseases feature prominently in the writings and inscriptions left behind by our ancestors for over 6, years and, for the whole of this time, humans have tried to find explanations as to why and how diseases come about.

Briefly, our knowledge of infectious diseases falls into three periods. Animal disease - Animal disease - Survey of animal diseases: Diseases may be either infectious or noninfectious. The term infection, as observed earlier, implies an interaction between two living organisms, called the host and the parasite.

Infection is a type of parasitism, which may be defined as the state of existence of one organism (the parasite) at the expense. However, high rates of other infectious diseases - such as hepatitis A, hepatitis B, diphtheria, foot problems and skin infections - have also been reported.

New evidence A systematic review and meta-analysis of 43 studies (four of which are from the UK), involv homeless people, assessed the prevalence of TB, hepatitis C virus and HIV. Infectious diseases for which two or fewer articles were identified (31) were not included.

Only studies that reported information on infection risk or disease outcome in pregnant women were included.

This resulted in 85 articles included (original articles and reviews) (Figure 1). Information was extracted from these publications by two of the Cited by:   Britain must now prepare itself for more cases of the coronavirus, health officials have warned, as they confirmed a first patient diagnosed in London on a day when the spread of the disease.

Background. Quantification of human interactions relevant to the spread of infectious diseases transmitted by close contact is essential to accurately predict their infection dynamics and better predict the impact of control strategies [1, 2].Detailed studies of social mixing patterns have now been undertaken in a number of settings [2–12].Those studies have shown Cited by: Leprosy, also known as Hansen's disease (HD), is a long-term infection by the bacteria Mycobacterium leprae or Mycobacterium lepromatosis.

Infection can lead to damage of the nerves, respiratory tract, skin, and eyes. This nerve damage may result in a lack of ability to feel pain, which can lead to the loss of parts of a person's extremities from repeated injuries or Causes: Mycobacterium leprae or.

The disease can be spread by the sputum of someone who already has the disease, which is then inhaled by someone else.

Again, the fact that cities were overcrowded made them the perfect environment for the spread of the disease. The records, although hard to come by, suggest that TB accounted for a third of death between and in Britain.

Non-infectious diseases are those that cannot be transmitted between affected animals, such as most types of cancer, whereas infectious diseases – often caused by bacteria, viruses or parasites – are transmissible.

The modes of disease transmission vary depending on the agent and the way the disease manifests itself. WHO Recommended Surveillance Standards.
