There are several methods to prevent transmission of diseases. Following are the main causes of transmission:
1. direct or indirect contact with an infected person or object.
2. airborne diseases, in which the infected bacteria or virus passes from one person to another through air. Vector-borne diseases refer to the transmission of infectious diseases through rats, flies, or mosquitoes.
3. When an infected individual sneezes or coughs, the droplets carry the infection.
Transmission through common vehicles refers to the intake of food, medicine, or water.
