Zoonotic Disease Deaths in the United States

With the exception of salmonellosis, deaths from Rocky Mountain spotted fever (RMSF) * have exceeded those of other reportable zoonoses in the United States for most of the past six decades. [1,2]    Rabies was the predominant cause of zoonotic death prior to 1950; Lyme disease and West Nile fever since 2000.

* Since 2010, reporting of “Rocky Mountain spotted fever” has been broadened to include related diseases –  under the heading “Spotted fever rickettsiosis”
