Zoonosis describes the process where an infectious disease is transmitted between species from animals other than humans or from humans to other animals. The different forms of Zoonosis are direct zoonosis and reverse zoonosis. In direct zoonosis the agent needs only one host for completion of its life cycle, without a significant change during transmission. In reverse zoonosis or anthroponosis, the infectious disease is transmitted from humans to other animals. In a systematic review of 1,415 pathogens known to infect humans, 61% were zoonotic. The greatest risk for zoonotic disease transmission occurs at the human-animal interface through direct or indirect human exposure to animals, their products or their environments. More than 60% of the newly identified infectious agents that have affected people over the past few decades have been caused by pathogens originating from animals or animal products. Seventy per cent of these zoonotic infections originate from wildlife.
