Hi. Welcome to JustAnswer. My name is Uzair.
I am reviewing your post and will get back to your reply momentarily.

There are many other routes of transmission of this infection including ingestion of infected food, from skin to skin contact of infectious secretions, unsanitary conditions and over crowded settings. So Iv drug addiction is not the only cause.

Hope this helps.
