Expert Answer:

Dear student,
In response to infection, the body’s immune system gets activated and recruits many specialised cells (white blood cells) to the affected tissue to kill off the pathogens. This recruitment process is called inflammation. During this process, there are local effects such as swelling and pain.
 
Basic principles:
i) Public hygiene is the first basic principle to the prevention of infectious diseases.
ii) The second basic principle is the availability of proper and sufficient food for everyone.
