How is anthrax passed from person to person?
anthrax is an infectious disease. It is transmitted to humans through animals. Is it possible to get anthrax from a person who is infected with anthrax? Anthrax can cause various symptoms from a skin ulcer with a dark scab to difficulty breathing. Some people also develop headaches, muscle aches, fever, and vomiting. Can anyone tell me is it contagious? If yes, then what should I do to prevent it?
