What is bacterial meningitis? What causes it? How does one get infected?
Bacterial meningitis is an infection triggered when bacteria finds its way into the middle ear cavity through a small hole known as Eustachian tube opening located at the back of each inner ear, which connects ears to nose .

Transmission involves close personal contact between two individuals who have been exposed either through airborne droplets or direct dro
