    Leptospirosis, which affects more than one million people worldwide each year, is known to be transmitted to humans from a wide range of animals. Now, researchers reporting in PLOS Neglected Tropical Diseases have discovered that more than 7 percent of the cattle and 1 percent of sheep and goats in local slaughterhouses in northern Tanzania are.   Occupations not traditionally associated with leptospirosis accounted for 318% of cases (n=66) however most had reported some form of contact with either rodents or cattle.
