Control of Infections on Space Station 2020

An outbreak of any illness aboard the Space Station poses problems for the crew.   Even one person who is sick can infect others very quickly.   The danger of the entire Space Station crew falling ill at the same time, raises wider safety issues.  The health of the crew are a major priority in the day-to-day management of the Space Station.

In the introduction, we found five factors that needed to be taken into account when considering microbes and the Space Station in general. All those five factors apply to controlling infection on the Station.
