Disinfection and the prevention of infectious disease
This paper presents a detailed review of the published data on disease transmission in home, community and hospital environments, which is then used to assess whether environmental disinfection plays a significant part in the prevention of infectious disease transmission. It makes reference to the infection control guidelines written by the IFH. The authors acknowledge that infectious diseases can arise through insufficient disinfection and thus that one of the means for prevention of disease is through proper disinfection.
