Meningococcal meningitis is spread through sneezing, coughing or direct contact with respiratory secretions. It is an acute disease that can cause serious systemic infection. 

Although respiratory infections are often difficult to prevent – hygiene when coughing and sneezing can help and we recommended avoiding overcrowded areas to reduce your exposure risk where this disease is prevalent.
