Shigella is a bacteria found in feces of animals and humans. If a human who has accidentally made contact with feces does not wash themselves properly, they have the ability to infect other humans with this bacteria. Symptoms of shigellosis include abdominal pain, nausea, bloody diarrhea, and a fever. After having personally experienced this disease, I remind you to please wash your hands. If you think you have contracted this infectious disease, please seek medical attention immediately.
