William Budd (14 September 1811 – 9 January 1880) was an English physician and epidemiologist known for recognizing that infectious diseases were contagious. He recognized that the "poisons" involved in infectious diseases multiplied in the intestines of the sick, were present in their excretions, and could then be transmitted to the healthy through their consumption of contaminated water. He particularly understood this about the transmission of cholera (as he learned from the work of the physician John Snow) and typhoid fever.

dbo:abstract
  • William Budd (* 14. September 1811 in North Tawton, Devon (England); † 9. Januar 1880 in Clevedon (Somerset), England) war Arzt und Epidemiologe im viktorianischen England. Er gewann die Erkenntnis, dass Infektionskrankheiten ansteckend sind, indem er erkannte, dass die bei Infektionskrankheiten beteiligten „Gifte“ sich in den Därmen der Kranken vervielfachten, in deren Ausscheidungen anwesend waren und durch den Konsum von kontaminiertem Wasser auf Gesunde übertragen werden konnten. Eigene Beobachtungen und insbesondere die Arbeiten von John Snow zur Übertragung von Cholera sowie Berichte Anderer zur Übertragung von Typhus führten ihn zu dieser Erkenntnis. (de)
