Not even what she was doing. Just being around someone who had it is enough. The best part: if you get it as a little kid, you don't generally get anything more than cold symptoms. So, moral of the story, get it as a kid and be a carrier for everyone else you ever meet!

Even as a joke, that's not funny. Not to mention that mono is airborne, so you can get it just from touching an infected surface, like a doorknob and then putting your hand near your nose or mouth.

Mono is not airborne, It is a direct contact viral illness that comes from bodily fluids, most commonly saliva. People like you are the reason you should not believe everything you read on the internet. I am a medical professional and it was most likely in the incubating period, a co-current infection cause by a weakened immune system in direct response to the mono or a misdiagnosis.

11- Are you an asshat? Mono is not airborne first of all, it happens through direct contact. Secondly, this is a comedy site, for people to post JOKES. If you want something serious I would recommend Experience Project. Have a nice day.

Mononucleosis is caused by the Epstein-Barr virus, and it's transmitted by saliva (which is why it's called the kissing disease). But you can also contract it by touching something that is contaminated with saliva, and then placing your now-contaminated hand in your mouth, nose, or eyes. It is NOT airborne, and is actually less contagious than the common cold.

According to Mayo clinic, mono is found in a person's saliva which means it can be spread through a cough or a sneeze. Granted it can't survive that long in the air, but if an infected person doesn't cover their mouth when sneezing and someone nearby breaths it in, they can become infected. So, although less contagious than a cold or the flu, it is still classified as being airborne. Go on their website if you don't believe me.

Mono doesn't have to come from kissing, someone with mono could've coughed into their hand, transmitting their infected saliva onto whatever they touch, and thus, what other strangers may touch, giving them mono. I should know, I got mono at 11, and I hadn't kissed anyone at 11.
