Read what Dr Behram Pardiwalla, Internal Medicine Expert, Wockhardt Hospitals, Mumbai Central has to say on Leptospirosis

“Leptospirosis is the infection caused by the bacterium Leptospira. It is usually spread through urine and feces of rats and dogs and it is especially rats when it is flooded. When rats pass stool or urine in water and if a person happens to go through that water and has some open wounds in the leg the chances of getting leptospirosis are very high. In villages, it happens to farmers since there are lot of rats in the field and when the farmers go to plow that is where they get infected. In Mumbai the chances of the disease is only when it is monsoon or when it is flooded,” says Dr Behram Pardiwalla, Internal Medicine Expert, Wockhardt Hospitals, Mumbai Central. The disease has an incubation period that ranged from four to 21 days. It affects both humans and animals.
