Scarlet Fever spreads the same way most diseases spread, through sneezes and coughs, if you come in to contact with a person with the disease and they sneeze on you, you will …probably get it aswell. to prevent this happening, wear face masks and cough, sneeze and yawn into your elbow. (MORE)
If I recall the most deaths from it were in Mexico, so I'm going to assume its there that one would have the highest chance of catching scarlet fever.
Yes. Scarlett fever is caused by the same bacteria that causes "Strep Throat". Most exposed people will either not get sick or, if they do, will get a sore throat.
