What are zoonotic diseases?
For the sake of those of you who are not familiar with the term “zoonotic,” it is the name that medical science has given to diseases that can be transferred from vertebrate animals to humans. They are also known as “zoonoses.” For more information about zoonotic diseases or zoonoses, you can visit the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (Defra) website.
What is the prevalence of zoonotic disease?
There are in the region of 40 different zoonoses that are prevalent here in the UK, to which approximately 300,000 people in various occupations are exposed. For conditions such as ringworm, for example, the incidence rate is approximately 4%, which translates roughly into 12,500 cases being reported per year. While the majority of zoonotic infections are mild in nature, there is increasing evidence to suggest that some of the more acute infections could have adverse long-term health effects.
