What does it mean to have an infectious disease?

In Unit 1, the students learned that infectious agents like bacteria, viruses, and parasites can cause infectious diseases. Students also saw that infectious diseases have wide reaching impacts on both individuals and society. Now we are going to focus on how infectious diseases are identified. Contrary to popular belief, determining that a disease is caused by an infection is surprisingly difficult and we are still discovering new infectious diseases today!
