New Epidemic?

Yesterday my friend asked me in a bus if he could "catch sepsis" by touch. The question was due to couple cases of sepsis that were lately reported in newspapers. First of all, by definition, sepsis (or septicaemia) is a condition that is caused by response of your immune system to a severe infection. So, you can NOT get sepsis by touching someone (and any different way), but you can catch an infection causing sepsis even from someone that suffers from a very mild one, because it's the response of the body to the infection that leads to this very severe state including shock and multiple organ dysfunction.
