Can meningococcal meningitis be passed on from person to person?

In brief: Respiratory droplets

Meningococcus lives in peoples' noses, and can be transmitted by cough or sneezing.
Only a few of the people who inhale meningococcus will actually get sick, but those who do get sick will be in grave danger.
