Meningitis

Today, I’d spend some time talking Bugs! Yeah,… These bad guys that cause Meningitis…

Who dem be self?
They are members of the #pepperthemgang… And they’ve been causing a lot of trouble around for ages.. The #BaddestGuy amongst them rocking our Dear Nation #Nigeria is #Neisseria meningitidis…

The other #BadGuys include

Streptococcus pneumonia, E.coli, Listeria monocytogenes, H.influenza amongst others… Even their names are awkwardly annoying!!!

 

HOW DO WE GET INFECTED??? Generally, they are spread from one person to another.
Mothers can pass Streptococcus and Escherichia coli to their babies during labor and birth.
People spread H. influeza and Streptococcus pneumoniae by coughing or sneezing while in close contact with others, who breathe in the bacteria. People spread
Neisseria meningitidis by sharing respiratory or throat secretions (saliva or spit). This typically occurs during close (coughing or kissing) or lengthy (living in the same household) contact.
People can get Escherichia coli by eating food prepared by people who did not wash their hands well after using the toilet.

Listeria monocytogenes, can spread through food.

So all you Kissers, Kwantinue o…. Neisseria is watching you!!! I’d be back tomorrow with more talks…

 

Pls help repost till it gets to @WHO, @PresidentMuhammaduBuhari and the others… Help my ministry, abeg…
