Probable hotspots for infectious diseases

Zoonoses are infections or infectious diseases caused by viruses, bacteria, parasites and other organisms that can transfer from animals to humans. Zoonoses are transmitted through a variety of pathways, including direct contact between animals and humans, insect bites, ingesting food and water contaminated with parasites and through the air.
