Introduction


Infectious diseases are caused by pathogenic microorganisms, such as bacteria, viruses, parasites or
fungi; the diseases can be spread, directly or indirectly, from one person to another. For humans,
transmission of pathogens may occur in a variety of ways: spread from person-to-person by direct
contact, water or foodborne illness or aerosolization of infected particles in the environment and
through insects (mosquitos and ticks).

Who is most at risk for getting infectious diseases?

Anyone can get an infectious disease. People with a compromised immune system (an immune system
that doesn’t work at full strength) have greater risk for certain types of infections. Those at higher risk
include:
• People with suppressed immune systems, such as those going through cancer treatment or who
have recently had an organ transplant
• Those who are unvaccinated against common infectious diseases
• Healthcare worked
• People traveling to at-risk areas where they may be exposed mosquitoes that carry pathogens
such as malaria, dengue virus and Zika viruses.

What are the symptoms of infectious diseases?

Symptoms of infectious disease are particular to the type of disease. For example, symptoms of
influenza include:
• Chills
• Congestion
• Fatigue
• Fever
• Muscle aches and head ache.

What causes infectious diseases?

Infectious diseases in humans are caused by microorganisms including:
• Viruses that invade and multiply inside healthy cells
• Bacteria, or small, single-celled organisms capable of causing disease
• Fungi, which include many different kinds of fungus
• Parasites, which are organisms that live inside host bodies causing sickness
Some diseases spread through droplets discharged from a sick person’s body when they cough or
sneeze. These droplets linger in the air for a short period of time, landing on a healthy person’s skin or
inhaled into their lungs. In some cases, infectious diseases travel through the air for long periods of time
in small particles. Healthy people inhale these particles and later become sick. Certain diseases spread
with airborne transmission.
In the recent years, we have witnessed the emergence of a number of new infectious diseases, many of
which were major public health threats that were met with important Infection prevention strategies.
Now, an outbreak of novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), which causes the coronavirus disease 2019
(abbreviated COVID-19) has spread rapidly, with cases confirmed in more than 140 countries.
Malaria, Dengue and Zika are other serious diseases spread through infection. Mosquito – borne
infectious diseases that affects humans and other animals, malaria and dengue cause symptoms that
typically include fever, tiredness, vomiting, and headaches which begin ten to fifteen days after being
bitten by an infected mosquito.

Disinfection and Sanitization as prevention strategy

Studies with epidemiologically important pathogens have shown that disinfection leads to decreased
transmission. Disinfection is the process of eliminating infectious organisms by using chemical or
physical agents. The antimicrobial agents designated as disinfectants are sometimes used alternatively
as sterilizing agents, sanitizers or antiseptics. World Health Organization (WHO) and Government of
India have adopted various sanitization and disinfection strategies to prevent the infection of microbial
diseases with patronization and support of Corporate Sector.

PROJECT DETAILS

This is a CSR-funded Disinfection and Sanitation project being implemented all over India district- wise.
Under Corporate-Govt cooperation the project is being implemented under “No Profit No Loss” with

hypochlorite or phenolic disinfectants.
v. Do not use disinfectants spray on potentially highly contaminated areas (such as
toilet bowl or surrounding surfaces) as it may create splashes which can further
spread the virus
