Welcome Simone, glad to have you join us. Great you have a history working with orangutans, can you enlighten us about possible exposures you might have had working with them regarding any zoonotic infection?

I developed our staff zoonosis prevention program at the zoo I worked with. Over the years we had to manage one or two zoonotic outbreaks, such as strongyloides infection, but on the whole our orangutans were a very healthy bunch and we didnt have many zoonotic issues.
