CARRIER

Definition

An organism harbouring a pathogenic agent. The relationship can be active (infection) or passive (without any multiplication of the pathogen). It can be short-term (not in a passive infection), or chronic. The pathogen can be excreted (continuously or occasionally) or it can remain in the tissues permanently.
