Abstract

Infectious diseases continue to impose unpredictable burdens on global health and economies. Therefore, this has become a concern, even in terms of national security.  In this sense, the objective of the present article was to review the role of wild animals as reservoirs and/or dispersers of etiological agents of human infectious diseases in order to compile data on the main wild animals and etiological agents involved in zoonotic outbreaks. The zoonotic threat of these etiological agents and the impact on public health can be enormous as shown by the ongoing epidemic of 2019 novel coronavirus (2019- nCoV) infections.
