    As I told you earlier that it is a neurologic disease in which person becomes mental. So, it can't be infectious, as there is nothing which can be done to spread it. But it can be spread genetically i.e. from parents to their offsprings and if it will spread then it can be dangerous for that family. In US nearly one million people are suffering from this disease. The cause of this disease is unknown and there is presently no cure for this disease, but treatment options are there such as medication and surgery to manage it.

    No, it is not an infectious disease as it not caused by any bacteria or virus.
