Brief Answer:
all infectious diseases are contagious...

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

all bacteria and viruses can be transmitted to other individuals under certain circumstances. The way to avoid transmitting it to other individuals involves adopting some basic measures of hygiene like washing the hands regularly and avoiding unnecessary contacts. If you're asking whether transmission is easy or not then the answer is that it is not. Just wash the hands (all of you) and you should be fine!

I hope it helps!
Kind Regards!
