Streptococcus is spread by breathing in the droplets of someone who has it, sharing drinks with someone, touching a surface with those droplets and then touching your face after. The best thing you can do to control the spread of streptococcus(strep throat) is washing your hands often. We should be doing this everyday, but it is especially important when you have an illness or disease of some sort. If you get sick you want to do you best to not spread it to other people. If you test positive for strep at the doctor they usually prescribe you an antibiotic to help you feel better quicker and help you not give it to others. Another way to stop the spread is being aware of the other people you live with. Don’t share drinks, food, towels, utensils etc. That is very important. I think these methods can be effective and people will follow them. No one wants to get strep because it is not fun. I think if we educate everyone on how it spreads and ways to control and prevent it people would understand and do those things.
