Just want to ask if this disease can be transferred via droplet infection? Like when I cough or sneeze ?

I have two little children and am really scared they will get it from me...

thank you

No, it cannot be spread from one person to another. It is my belief that it can be spread through transfusion or organ transplant. I don't know if there is any documented proof of that. Dave or Sharon can probably answer that one better than I can.

Hi Kat and K_poh,

Kat is right. It is not spread from sneezing, and it has been spread from organ transplantation.

In fact, not only has it been repeatedly documented and found in donated organs (one VF victim was a donor whose organs were spread out and infected 3 transplant recipients) but even people who receive healthy donated organs are at a higher risk of being sicker from VF. This is because the transplantation drugs suppress their immune system's ability to fight VF if the recipients inhale a spore.

The bottom line for you though is that your sickness will not be transferred to your kids.

Best of health,
