    I’m not a teacher.

    Hi maral55,

    infect = to affect in a contagious way as in: “His fear infected me, and . . . I followed as fast as I could”

    infect with their laughter; his laughter infected all the guest; be infected by the common joy/with the general merriment.

    Regards,

    V.

    You mean that it caused the others to laugh too?

    Yes, as well as in your case to "be enthusiastic."
