Newcastle Disease is considered infectious but is not transmitted from person to person.
Generally, a disease like this is caused by an infectious agent and not spread between people.
Newcastle Disease, although infectious, is not a genetic disease. It is not caused by a defective or abnormal gene.
Contagion and contagiousness refers to how easily the spread of Newcastle Disease is possible from one person to another. Other words for contagion include "infection", "infectiousness", "transmission" or "transmissability". Contagiousness has nothing to do with genetics or inheriting diseases from parents. For an overview of contagion, see Introduction to Contagion.
