What are the disadvantages of infectious diseases?
Due to modern technology and advancement in science, we have antibiotics and other medicines to cure many diseases. But there are few limitations that are normally face, while treating an infectious disease. The limitations or disadvantages of infectious disease are:
1. Once someone has disease, his body functions are damaged and may never recover completely. 2. The treatment will take time. It means that someone suffering from a disease is likely to be bedridden for sometime even if proper treatment is given. 3. The person suffering from a infectious disease can serve as the source for further spread of infection to other people. Because of these limitations, prevention of disease is better than cure.
