Infectious diseases are caused by viruses, bacteria, fungi, protozoa, or multi-cellular parasites. Such diseases usually spread, with greater or lesser ease, from one person to another or even one species to another.
Our Infectious Diseases Support Group will help you get in touch with doctors and patients sharing the same concerns as yours.
Do you that diphtheria is a very deadly disease that can even result in death and can easily spread from one person to another. A powerful toxin that is produced by the bacteria can spread across the body and result in respiratory failure, heart failure or can block the airway resulting in death. The diphtheria vaccine that is commonly given as DPT and DT helps us in combating against this deadly problem.
