Symbol for biohazardous infectious material
Deutsch: Eine Infektionskrankheit ist eine durch Erreger hervorgerufene Erkrankung. Eine Infektionskrankheit wird umgangssprachlich auch Infekt genannt. Sie ist aber nicht einer Infektion gleich zu setzen, da nicht jede Infektion notwendigerweise zu einer Erkrankung führt.
English: In medicine, infectious disease or communicable disease is disease caused by a biological agent such as by a virus, bacterium or parasite. This is contrasted to physical causes, such as burns or chemical ones such as through intoxication. While the word "infectious" can cause alarm, it is simply a term for a whole class of diseases. Infectious diseases need not be dangerous, and may not spread from person to person at all.
Español: En medicina, las enfermedades infecciosas o infecciones son causadas por un agente biológico.
Français : Les maladies infectieuses sont des maladies qui se définissent par leur vecteur : virus, bactérie, parasite, mycose ou prion. Elles sont susceptibles d’affecter n’importe quel organisme vivant (animal ou végétal). Leur mode de transmission est variable et dépend de leur réservoir (humain, animal, environnemental). Elles sont plus ou moins contagieuses.
