University of Florida Chemistry Outreach Program The Spread of Infectious Disease Estimated Time: 45 mins. + 10 mins. clean-up Topics: Disease transfer, Acid/base pH, Graphing, SC.G.1.3 Introduction: Disease can spread very rapidly through an isolated population. Infectious diseases can spread via bodily fluids, simple skin contact, or even through the air in worst case scenarios. Disease use a host to prorogate more diseased cells. The host can easily come in contact with more people daily and transmit the disease. Sometimes diseases spread so fast that many people become infected prior to any symptoms appearing. This is a severe health problem because people all start getting sick at once and there is no isolatable host. Objective: This lab was created to show how quickly diseases can spread through a population. The students interact with other students in the class by mixing their solutions. This is supposed to simulate people’s germs and bodily fluids mixing together when they kiss, sneeze, or interact in other ways. As the number of interactions per student increases from one to five the number of people infected
