"It is estimated that up to 90 percent of Macaque Monkeys carry the B virus, which may be shed in saliva. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that the extremely high prevalence of B-virus along with their behavioral characteristics make the Macaque species unsuitable as pets. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also recommend that children under five years of age and immunocompromised persons avoid contact with reptiles due to Salmonella risks."

these diseases are preventable by •practicing good personal hygiene;
•providing prompt and effective first aid treatment to cuts and scratches;
•using personal protective equipment eg overalls, gloves, boots, goggles, aprons;
•cleaning and disinfecting work spaces and equipment;
•vaccinating pets and livestock;
•worming pets;
