Abstract:

Containment in both laboratory and clinical settings comes down to how the environment is engineered to handle infectious disease threats. In biological laboratories, there are four main biosafety levels. Each level is designed and engineered to house specific infectious disease threats. Clinical containment is a similar but more theoretical practice of managing the infectious disease threats in health care settings.
