 F-diagram/ Faecal-oral route that causes Polio and diarrhoea.

When we defecate in the open, flies sit on the faeces and then transmit the germs and bacteria to us by sitting on food items in our houses. Also, when we defecate in the open, our feet become dirty and we end up carrying the germs back home with ourselves. And through our hands, utensils and food these enter our systems and cause severe complications. That is why, we must always use a toilet.
