Infectious diseases are caused by pathogenic micro-organisms, such as bacteria, viruses, parasites or fungi; the diseases can be spread, directly or indirectly, from one person to another. Zoonotic diseases are infectious diseases of animals that can cause disease when transmitted to humans.

The invasion and multiplication of micro-organisms such as bacteria, viruses, and parasites that are not normally present within the body may cause no symptoms and be subclinical, or it may cause symptoms and be clinically apparent. An infection may remain localized, or it may spread through the blood or lymphatic vessels to become systemic (body wide). Micro-organisms that live naturally in the body are not considered infections. For example, bacteria that normally live within the mouth and intestine are not infections.
