感染 means 'become infected' while 传染 means 'spread virus towards'. Therefore, the former is the result of the latter. For example,

我感染了病毒,因为我被同事传染了

Wǒ            gǎnrǎnle       bìngdú, yīnwéi  wǒ  bèi   tóng shì  chuánrǎnle

I        become infected     virus    because   I   was  colleague spread virus

'I caught the virus because I was infected by a colleague.'
