The First Defence against Fighting Germs is Hand Washing

Microorganisms: How They Are Transmitted 

Microorganisms known as germs are minute living bodies that cannot be seen by the naked eye, such as bacterium or protozon. Listed below are the following ways by which microorganisms can be carried from one host to another:

Human Carriers:  any person who has recent recovered from an infectious disease remains a carrier of that infection that was caused by the organism, and may transfer the organism to another host.

Air: Pathogenic microorganisms in the respiratory tract may be discharged from the mouth or nose. These organisms that are present may carry infection if they resist drying. They will settle on food, dishes, clothing, skin, and as such.


Food borne:  Food and water handled by infected persons may contain pathogenic organisms acquired from them or through fecal or insect contamination.

Insects: May be physical carriers or may act as the Anopheles mosquito. Flies are also carriers of organisms.

Animal Carriers:  There are some organisms that are pathogenic for animals that can be transmitted to humans through direct or indirect contact. And is a link between animals and humans. Therefore, the animal carrier is also an intermediary host.

Soil-borne: The spore-forming organism in soil can enter the body through broken skin such as a cut, sore, or wound.  Fruits and vegetables, such as roots, should be cleaned thoroughly before being eaten raw, to avoid ingesting organisms, from the soil.

*Pathogenic __ disease-producing. Normally, used in reference to bacteria.

Good hygiene and cleanliness are the best defence against fighting against many diseases.

Streptococcal Bacteria

Streptococcal Bacteria is referred to as a fast moving killer. In May of 1994, Medical scientists made known to the public that a highly virulent strain of Streptococcal Bacteria is known to be a “Deadly flesh eating bacteria,” that is in the United States and in other parts of the world as well. The disease, is a serious concern to Medical Science, because the symptoms produced by the bacteria, are often disregarded in the early stages – thereby, making it dangerously life threatening.


The Streptococcal Bacteria virus causes the skin, muscles, and tissue to decay. And can spread as fast as an inch per hour. It can be transmitted by touching an infected person. The bacteria, creates a toxic enzyme poison, which poisons the flesh and causes it to die. The toxins produced by the infection poisons skin, muscles, tissue, and internal organs; which in turn, cause the white corpuscles known to fight infection, to careen out of control. When this situation occurs, the lungs, liver, and kidneys shut down, causing the person to go into toxic shock. Death can occur.
