Morning, I’m Ifa 20th. I want to ask, 2 days ago I visited my friend who was sick with pneumonia. While in the hospital I chatted and joked as usual with my friends and we even ate together. yes eat together 1 plate together, also spoon together. Will I also catch the disease he is experiencing? Thank you in advance.

Hello

Inflammation of the lungs can be caused by various factors, such as viruses, bacteria, fungi, allergic or autoimmune reactions. Inflammation caused by viruses, bacteria or fungi can transmit the disease by using cutlery simultaneously at the same time because one of the transmissions from viruses, bacteria or fungi is from fluids from the respiratory tract that can pass through the air when coughing or sneezing , or from the liquid in the mouth. It is also recommended that both sufferers and patient visitors with these conditions use masks because of the potential for discharge that has been mentioned.

However, if the inflammation that occurs is caused by an allergic or autoimmune reaction, it cannot be transmitted because it is influenced by activities in the patient's body alone, without any cause that can infect other people.

However, what you do by eating at the same time with only the same appliance is not very good. Because it is feared that there are diseases that can be transmitted through fluids from the mouth that can be swallowed by you and your friends. However, if you use the same utensil and don't eat at the same time, and the tools have been washed properly, there is no problem because it has broken the chain of transmission from viruses, fungi or bacteria.

I hope this helps.
