Traveller exposures to animals: a GeoSentinel analysis

Published inJournal of Travel Medicine, vol. 27, no. 7
Publication date2020
Abstract

Human coexistence with other animals can result in both intentional and unintentional contact with a variety of mammalian and non-mammalian species. International travellers are at risk for such encounters; travellers risk injury, infection and possibly death from domestic and wild animal bites, scratches, licks and other exposures. The aim of the present analysis was to understand the diversity and distribution of animal-related exposures among international travellers.
