An infection happens when a foreign organism or a pathogen enters an individual’s body and induces harm. Some infections are mild and hardly noticeable, but others are severe and dangerous, and some are even resistant to treatment. Examples of these pathogens include bacteria, fungi, viruses, protozoa, parasites, and prions. Infection control is the discipline concerned with preventing infections and it is an essential part of the infrastructure of health care.
