It's been raining cats and dogs (or elephants and dinosaurs, as one friend would say) for the past 3 days . Here we are again, Manila, in the middle of a crazy monsoon accompanied by a mad storm called Maring. Flood is everywhere. And if we know a disease that is synonymous to flood water exposure, it would be leptospirosis. I found this helpful infographic on leptospirosis that can help you recognize the signs and symptoms of the disease early. If you identify these signs and symptoms, do consult a doctor immediately to prevent severe complications. I had seen patients with leptospirosis and the complications can be pretty scary.
