The infection in animals other than humans is caused by a different but related mite species, and is called sarcoptic mange. Scabies is classified by the World Health Organization as a water-related disease.[3] The disease may be transmitted from objects, but is most often transmitted by direct skin-to-skin contact, with a higher risk with prolonged contact.
