Infectious diseases are a branch of science that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases caused by microorganisms. While many infectious diseases such as tuberculosis, plague, leprosy, smallpox, and the flu have existed throughout the history of the world, humans have been fighting microorganisms for centuries. While smallpox has been eradicated by vaccination, new infectious diseases such as AIDS and COVID-19 have emerged. In recent years, with the developments that have taken place in the field of medicine with increasing organ and tissue transplantation, oncology treatment, intensive care units, complex surgeries and preventive measures that increase the life expectancy of patients, it also has increased the patient's risk of contracting infectious diseases.
