'It is probable that human cases of chronic wasting disease associated with consumption with contaminated meat will be documented in the years ahead, ' Osterhold said.
No cases of CWD have been reported in humans to date, but research suggests it poses a risk to humans.
The chronic wasting disease - or CWD has been detected in 24 USA states and two Canadian provinces. However, up until recently, a unusual and deadly disease, which turned deers into zombies, has been disturbing North America.
In October 2018, the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission implemented a new rule for 2018-2019 prohibiting the importation of whole deer carcasses and restricting importation of specific carcass parts from anywhere outside of North Carolina in an effort to prevent the spread of chronic wasting disease.
Usually, however, CWD is spread directly by animal-to-animal contact and indirectly through contaminated water and food.
Tomecek explained the disease is neither viral, nor bacterial, but instead is a Prion disease, one of a "family of rare progressive neurodegenerative disorders that affect both humans and animals", a more detailed description on the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website says. But the disease is always fatal.

Trump criticizes California over lawsuit against border wall
The agreement does not require the California High-Speed Rail Authority to build trains for the track. The president had other ideas, and took to Twitter to demand that California return the money.
CWD has also been reported in two provinces in Canada, and in reindeer and moose in Norway and Finland - and there's been a small number of imported cases reported in South Korea. While CWD is still relatively rare, infection rates among deer and elk in areas where the disease is most common have been recorded at about 10-25%, the CDC says, and rates can be especially high among captive deer.
No evidence now could prove that the disease can spread to humans, but it could affect the central nervous system of animals and make them more aggressive and less afraid of human contact. Also, never shoot and handle a deer or elk that is acting strangely.
If your animal tests positive for CWD, do not eat meat from that animal.
The CDC recommends that hunters and people who eat deer, elk or moose stay aware of where CWD has been found and heed local public health guidance.
If you have your deer or elk commercially processed, consider asking that your animal be processed individually to avoid mixing meat from multiple animals.
Do not use household knives or other kitchen utensils for field dressing.
