@agnes E.coli bacterial infection can be spread through animals and humans. The most common ways it spreads are eating contaminated, raw fruits and vegetables, drinking contaminated water, contact with a person who has poor hygiene and doesn’t wash their hands regularly, and contact with infected animals. Here are a few preventive measures-
- Wash your hands thoroughly with soap in water and dry them completely.
- Do not share towels or nappy changing mats.
- Disinfection sprays and wipes or alcohol-based wipes may be used on toilet seats and other surfaces, but only after any visible soiling has been removed.
- Always wash hands after going to the toilet
