CHAIN OF INFECTION: WHAT IS IT AND HOW TO BREAK IT
Grainger Editorial Staff
The term "Chain of Infection" refers to the conditions (links) that must be met in order for an infectious disease to spread.
The idea of Breaking The Chain of Infection means stopping at least one of those links, thus preventing it from starting again. If unchecked, certain infections can spread rapidly through the chain.
