Contagious disease

Definition of Contagious disease

Con`ta´gious dis`ease´
1.(Med.) A disease communicable by contact with a patient suffering from it, or with some secretion of, or object touched by, such a patient.

Many germ diseases are not contagious, some special method of transmission or inoculation of the germs being required.
