In brief: Meningococcal diseas

The disease is spread person-to-person through the exchange of respiratory and throat secretions- Meningococcal bacteria can't live for more than a few minutes outside the body, so the disease is not spread as easily as the common cold or influenza.

In brief: Very

Meningococcal meningitis is usually transmitted by airborne droplets.
Isolation with masks, gloves and gowns are required for contact with infected patients.
