Concept #1: Intro to Characteristics of Infectious Disease

Concept #2: Communicable vs. Noncommunicable Diseases

Practice: Which of the following would be considered a sign of a disease or infection?

Practice: Diseases or infections that can be transmitted from one individuals to another are categorized as what types of diseases?

Practice: Which of the following illnesses is an example of a noncommunicable disease?

Practice: Determine if the diseases below are communicable or noncommunicable diseases.

A. Communicable Disease. B.  Noncommunicable Disease.
_____ 1) Lung Cancer.            _____ 3) HIV.                         _____  5) Diabetes.
_____ 2) Measles.                   _____ 4) Stroke.                    _____ 6) Covid-19.

Practice: Pathogens that are very virulent are more likely to cause disease than pathogens that are less virulent (Virulence: the ability of a pathogen to cause and infection/disease). The infectious dose for Virus X is must lower than the infectious dose of Virus Y. Which virus is more virulent?

Concept #3: Primary vs. Secondary Infections

Practice: Opportunistic pathogens are least likely to infect which of the following groups of people?

Concept #4: Virulence

Practice: Characteristics of a pathogen that promote pathogenicity are called:

Practice: Virulent pathogens are:
