    one infectious disease could be diphteria. a disease caused by a bacteria called Corynebacterium diphteriae. this is a gram +, aerobic and has the shape of a rod. It inhabits the tissues of the outer regions of the respiratory tract, the throat and tonsils mainly. it caused disease by liberating an exotin whose efects are the formation of a false membrane closing the passage of air in the throat, and the inhibition of protein synthesis. this may lead to dead, but not nowadays since there is a vaccine available. it is transmited by air or airborne, so the ways to avoid it i leave to you. another way to prevent it is the application ofa vaccine. see toxoid. ok, i think you can take it from here. good luck
