. Write the Modes of Transmission of Amoebiasis


Best Answer

Modes of Transmission of Amoebiasis:

1. Infection spreads only through the cyst form of the parasite.

2. If the parasite is non-encysted, or in the trophozoite form, they usually die in the stomach because of the high acidity. Hence it isn’t infectious.

3. The mode of transmission is by faeco-oral route.

4. The transmission is indirect by:

i. Vehicles like contaminated food or water.

ii. Transmission by contact with unclean hands and fingers.

iii. Carrier: An infected individual who himself is not suffering from any symptoms but is capable of transmitting the disease to others through poor hygienic practices.
