Zoonoses are a persistent threat to the global human health Today, more than diseases occurring in humans and animals are known to be mutually transmitted. Classical infectious diseases, such as rabies, plague, and yellow fever, have not been eradicated despite major efforts. New zoonotic diseases are on the increase due global conditions such as overpopulation, wars, and food scarcity Cited by: A zoonotic disease or zoonosis (plural is zoonoses) is any disease of animals that can be transmitted to people.

This list includes some zoonotic diseases and related topics that affect people in Washington State. For brochures, reports, and other handouts, see our animal and vectorborne disease publications. This is a list of the deadliest animals to humans worldwide, measured by the number of humans killed per year.

No treatment is available. Infected animals must be freeze-branded, sent to market, euthanized or quarantined for life.

Animals can sometimes appear healthy even when they are carrying germs that can make people sick, depending on the zoonotic disease. Zoonotic diseases are very common, both in the United States and around the world.

A person will normally begin showing signs of the disease about eight to twelve weeks after the bite of an infected animal.

In recent years, zoonoses and communicable diseases common to man and animals have gained increasing attention worldwide. Human diseases that have their origins in infected animals, such as AIDS or Creutzfeldt-Jakob, have highlighted the need for a better understanding of animal : Paperback.
