Meningitis is the inflammation of the meninges which is  outer covering of the brain and spinal cord. Meningitis can be bacterial, viral and fungal. Viral meningitis is caused by a virus called enteroviruses.

Viruses which cause meningitis are contagious which means they can spread from person to person through mucus, saliva and stool. It is more common in children but can affect any age. It is not only contagious for children but to every one.
