Fish Pox

Fish pox is also known as carp pox. This is a viral infection that usually afflicts koi more often than goldfish. Visible signs of this disease include large white patches that cover large areas of the fish. The white patches resemble a white or pinkish waxy substance in appearance. Keeping the water clean is a way of preventing this disease from occuring , because there is no cure for this disease. It is also a good idea to isolate the sick fish in order to prevent the disease from spreading to the ones that are healthy.

No it isn't. The only diease that fish can transfer to humans is fish TB.
