Zoonoses are a group of infectious diseases, common to humans and individual animal species, that can be transmitted from animals to humans and vice versa. The causative agents of zoonoses are primarily found in animals but can also be transmitted to humans under certain circumstances. Sources of zoonoses can be both domestic and wild animals. Humans can become infected directly through live animals or after consuming contaminated food of animal origin. The severity of the symptoms of the disease in humans can vary from mild symptoms to life-threatening conditions. Zoonoses can be especially dangerous for babies and children, pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems. Every year, millions of people get food-borne zoonoses.
