520    Tularaemia is a bacterial zoonotic disease of the northern
       hemisphere. The bacterium (Francisella tularensis) is 
       highly virulent for humans and a range of animals such as 
       rodents, hares and rabbits. Humans can infect themselves 
       by direct contact with infected animals, by arthropod 
       bites, by ingestion of contaminated water or food, or by 
       inhalation of infective aerosols. There is no human-to-
       human transmission. In addition to its natural occurrence,
       F. tularensis evokes great concern as a potential 
       bioterrorism agent. F. tularensis subspecies tularensis is
       one of the most infectious pathogens known in human 
       medicine. In order to avoid laboratory-associated 
       infection, safety measures are needed and consequently, 
       clinical laboratories do not generally accept specimens 
       for culture. However, since clinical management of cases 
       depends on early recognition, there is an urgent need for 
       diagnostic services. This first edition of WHO Guidelines 
       on tularaemia provides background information on the 
       disease, describes the current best practices for its 
       diagnosis and treatments in humans, suggests measures to 
       be taken in case of epidemics and provides guidance on how
       to handle F. tularensis in the laboratory. The target 
       audience includes clinicians, laboratory personnel, public
       health workers, veterinarians, and any other person with 
       an interest in zoonoses
