Abstract

Tularemia is an illness that affects both animals and man. It is caused by the bacteria Francisella tularensis, which can live for 3 - 4 months in mud, water, or the carcasses of dead animals. Humans can catch tularemia by handling infected animals or from bites by infected flies, mosquitoes, or ticks.
