Start Of Rainy Days: Leptospirosis Days

Flood will never have a good benefit for people. Rainy days are coming fast and whenever there is rain, there will always be a flood. Leptospirosis is one of many disease we could have in a flood. The Leptospirosis came from the virus leptospira.

The Department of Health (DOH) alarms all people to be careful of flood and advise to wear a boots wherever there is flood. Metro Manila is one of high risks places when it comes to Leptospirosis but the DOH said that people should be careful because there is still a possible Leptospirosis Virus wherever rats are around.

In a reports, Metro Manila has a total of 454 Leptospirosis victims compare to the victims last year which is about 260 people only. On the study, students are the most affected here because they will encounter those floods everyday as they go to school and back at home.

Fever more than a week, yellowish skin and eyes and having a hard time on urinating are the symptoms of Leptospirosis. If you experienced these symptoms, its better to consult a doctor as early as possible. Do not take it lightly because Leptospirosis is deadly. 

Note that the best thing we could do to fight this disease is to stay clean.
