How are mumps spread?

Mumps is a highly contagious viral infection that is spread through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks. The virus can also be spread by touching surfaces or objects contaminated with the virus and then touching the mouth, nose, or eyes.

People with mumps are most contagious in the days before and after the onset of symptoms. Additionally, mumps can be spread by individuals who have the virus but do not show any symptoms.

Given its contagious nature, mumps can spread rapidly in settings where people are in close contact with each other, such as schools, colleges, and communal living spaces. Therefore, it is important to practice good hygiene, such as covering the mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing, and frequent handwashing, to prevent the spread of mumps. Vaccination is also a crucial measure for preventing mumps and its transmission.
