DEFRA - 2011 - UK Zoonoses Report 2010. Zoonoses are diseases and infections which are naturally transmitted between vertebrate animals and man.
A zoonotic agent may be a bacterium, virus, fungus, parasite, or other communicable agent. Zoonoses cover a broad range of diseases with different clinical and epidemiological features and control measures. We publish an annual Report on Zoonoses in the UK with summaries of trends and sources of zoonotic infection in humans, animals, food and feedstuffs in the UK.
These reports are compiled from data obtained from national surveillance systems and control programmes, research programmes and from data submitted to the European Community by agencies contributing to the Report. The report is likely to be especially useful to professionals dealing with zoonotic diseases, but should also give non-specialists an insight into the subject.
