This reference work describes the routes by which disease causing microorganisms are transmitted and how disease transmission is prevented by disinfection and control of microbial growth. The first part of this book addresses the processes of infectious disease transmission and prevention. The second section specifically deals with the prevention of infectious diseases that are transmitted by water or food. The third part considers disease transmission by aerosols, environmental surfaces and medical devices. The final four chapters describe some essential mechanisms of disinfection. Throughout this volume, experts demonstrate how our ability to model the processes of disease transmission and disinfection helps us understand them.
