Semarang City is included in the Covid-19 red zone. The natural evolution of CoV has been confirmed as the cause of Covid-19 transmission in various countries. Based on eco-geographical mapping, it can be seen the distribution of animals as a potential source of possible origin coronavirus. This information can be used to analyze the potential for emerging zoonotic diseases in Semarang City. Research aims to describe the potential emerging zoonotic diseases through the distribution of data&information on distribution of various animal species. Collecting data conduct by cluster random sampling through surveys. Criteria for sample people who live near monitored, patients &confirmed positive Covid-19(treated/cured/deceased) that have pets/livestock also wild animals around residence. The results show there are 3 animal health center (Gayamsari, Mijen, Gunungpati) from a total of 16 sub-districts.

Finding in Ngaliyan district there are respondents monitored,patients,&confirmed positive Covid-19; presence of pets:cats&birds; wild animals: bats&cats.
