    Explanation
    Germs can be passed through animal or insect carriers because these carriers can come into contact with germs and then transmit them to humans. Germs can also be passed via faeces because they can be present in fecal matter and contaminate surfaces or objects. Additionally, germs can be transmitted on bits of dust in the air as they can attach to dust particles and be inhaled by individuals.

    Which of the following should you do to someone with an infectious disease in the home?

    Correct Answer
    C. Isolate them
    Explanation
    To prevent the spread of the infectious disease, it is important to isolate the person who is infected. Isolation helps to minimize the contact between the infected individual and others, reducing the risk of transmission. By isolating the person, you can limit their interaction with family members or other individuals in the household, thus preventing the spread of the disease to others. This can be done by providing a separate room for the infected person and ensuring they have their own personal items and facilities to minimize contact with others.

During winter, people tend to spend more time indoors in close proximity to others, which increases the likelihood of the bacteria spreading through respiratory droplets. Additionally, the cold and dry air during winter can cause the throat to become dry and irritated, making it more susceptible to infection.
