Ok, I guess I'll post the next questions.

1. List 4 types of direct transmission and 4 different types of indirect transmission.
2. What is a good treatment for botulism?
3. Give an example of healthy worker effect.
4. What is the formula for chi-squares?
Direct: kissing, touching lesions, isitokifidontspellitouthere, and droplet spread
Indirect: foodborne, vector borne, airborne, fomites (idk if this is the type of answer u wanted)
A good treatment for botulism is botulinum antitoxin.
Healthy worker: workers have lower overall death rates than other people because they are less likely to have chronic illness or be extremely young or old.
Chi-squares: (in division b so this is googled) sigma square of observed result minus expected result divided by the expected result.

Gram staining is a method used to differenciate between Gram positive and gram negative bacteria. Gram positive means that the bacteria has this thing called peptidoglycan. Gram negative means that it does not have it. Gram positive: L. monocytogenes Gram negative: salmonella typhi Neither: Mycoplasmataceae

Some examples for the last one are [i]Mycoplasma pneumoniae[/i] and [i]Borrelia burgdorferi[/i]
