Is Travellers Disease Contagious?

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) each year between 20%-50% of international travelers an estimated 10 million persons develop Travelers Diarrhea. 20% of that total (2 million people) is estimated to have been infected by parasites.
PORTLAND, Ore. - April 3, 2013 - PRLog -- The microorganisms that cause infectious diarrhea are easily spread to other people. They may be spread directly to soap, wash clothes and other items that have been in contact with the microorganisms, either directly or indirectly. They could be on your toilet seat, faucet handles, shower handles, etc.  In essence, if you come in contact with the microorganisms, your fingers can spread the germs to anything they touch. These germs may survive for a long time, though some die quickly.

If you prepare food at home or in a restaurant the food is not kept hot enough to kill the germs and they can transfer on to the food. It may not become obvious that you were infected for several days.

Contaminated water and food are the major sources of infectious diarrhea and the major source of both is microorganisms from some animal such as humans. Wash your hands. It's not magic but it sure can help prevent these types of diarrhea.

Diarrhea due to metabolic or genetic issues is not as contagious but washing your hands to prevent spread of fecal organisms remains a cornerstone for prevention of many other health problems. Normal fecal microbes can cause many other serious infections when they are inoculated to other anatomic locations.
