Zoonosis

Zoonosis is defined as "an infectious disease transmissible under natural conditions between vertebrate animals and human beings". There are more than 150 diseases recognized under the umbrella of zoonosis. Some of the better known examples include: anthrax, bursilosis, hunta virus, bubonic plage, hemoragic fevers like ebola, rabies, and even AIDS.
