An infectious disease can be caused by many pathogens, including bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites. The transmission of these pathogens can occur in a variety of ways: direct or indirect contact with a person or animal with the infection, food or water contamination, or insect bites. These diseases are very common.

What are the commonly associated symptoms?
Infectious diseases each have their own associated symptoms. General symptoms can include:
- Muscle aches
How can infectious diseases be diagnosed?
Diagnosis of infectious diseases can be done through a variety of laboratory tests. Samples of blood, sputum, urine, stool, tissue, or mucus may be taken when you come into TKI for your appointment.
