What are Pathogens?

In this new world of dealing with deadly virus strains, it is important to know a bit of the technical side of what we are all up against.

Pathogens – a bacterium, virus, or other microorganism that can cause disease (Oxford Dictionary)

A pathogen is an organism that causes disease.

Your body is naturally full of microbes. However, these microbes only cause a problem if your immune system is weakened or if they manage to enter a normally sterile part of your body.

Pathogens are different and can cause disease upon entering the body.

All a pathogen needs to thrive and survive is a host. Once the pathogen sets itself up in a host’s body, it manages to avoid the body’s immune responses and uses the body’s resources to replicate before exiting and spreading to a new host.

Pathogens can be transmitted a few ways depending on the type. They can be spread through skin contact, bodily fluids, airborne particles, contact with feces, and touching a surface touched by an infected person.
