Sork fever is a viral disease that is spread by infected forest sores. You may become ill if you touch the animals, their saliva, urine or faeces, or inhale dust containing urine or faeces. The disease does not infect humans. You can get pretty bad from cured fever, but most will be completely healthy again.
