The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or CDC are saying that the number and types of zoonotic diseases are increasing.
Disease that originates in animals then jumps to humans causing disease are called zoonotic diseases, or zoonoses. And the CDC says that as many as 60% of all communicable diseases and 75% of emerging infectious diseases of people are originating with animals.
They give several reasons why the number and types of zoonotic diseases are increasing: one is because people or animals can now travel the globe in less time than it takes for disease symptoms to develop after exposure (incubation period);
Another is that the human and animal populations are increasing with animal habitat decreasing bringing about encroachment with increased contact; and that increasing human populations and resulting pollution are increasingly impacting climate change helping zoonotic disease thrive.
There are increasing examples of zoonotic disease jumping to humans. Recently, California health officials reported a typhus outbreak had reached “epidemic levels” in the city of Pasadena, California.
The official source of the outbreak was said to be fleas from wild animals with health officials blaming the outbreak on warm weather and human interaction with animals in neighborhoods that have an “interface” with wildlife in nearby canyons and forest.
Then recently for the first time ever, there were recorded cases of a rat-specific strain of hepatitis jumping to humans in Hong Kong with it unclear how it was transmitted, but Hong Kong in recent years has been plagued by a growing rat population.
The CDC says with so many emerging infectious diseases originating from animals, treatments and vaccines may not exist or be readily available for people infected with zoonoses.
Pestilence is foretold in the Biblical prophecies in Matthew 24 as a sign of the Last Days, and deathly pestilence is connected to beasts or meaning animals in the prophecy of Revelation 6.
There it foretells the pale horse of the horseman of death who had power over the earth to kill, and one way he did so, was by the wild beasts of the earth.
