Animals/ Pets

Some groups of people are more susceptible to catching diseases from animals, due to their compromised immune systems i.e.

  • Infants and small children, since their immune systems are not fully developed and they have poor hygiene.
  • Pregnant women have compromised immune systems and there are risks to the foetus as well.
  • Others who have a compromised immune system, e.g. older people.
  • Patients undergoing treatments such as AIDS and cancer patients.
