I believe this is a very real danger. As others have posted Bacteria have and continue to become antibody resistant so tratmmen regiments have
changed and new antibiotics developed. The worst case is an airborne virus which has an incubation periosd of under 24 hours. And also one that we
have no defense against.
Transmission (medicine)From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (Redirected from Airborne transmission)
Jump to: navigation, search In medicine and biology, transmission is the passing of a communicable disease from an infected host individual or group
to a conspecific individual or group, regardless of whether the other individual was previously infected. Sometimes transmission can specifically
mean infection of a previously uninfected host.
The term usually refers to the transmission of microorganisms directly from one person to another by one or more of the following means:
droplet contact – coughing or sneezing on another person
direct physical contact – touching an infected person, including sexual contact
indirect physical contact – usually by touching soil contamination or a contaminated surface
airborne transmission – if the microorganism can remain in the air for long periods
fecal-oral transmission – usually from contaminated food or water sources
