  • From wikipedia:

  • Leptospirosis (also known as Weil’s syndrome, canicola fever, canefield fever, nanukayami fever, 7-day fever, Rat Catcher’s Yellows, Fort Bragg fever, black jaundice and Pretibial fever) is caused by infection with bacteria of the genus Leptospira, and affects humans as well as other mammals, birds, amphibians, and reptiles.

    The infection is commonly transmitted to humans by allowing water that has been contaminated by animal urine to come in contact with unhealed breaks in the skin, the eyes, or with the mucous membranes. Outside of tropical areas, leptospirosis cases have a relatively distinct seasonality with most of them occurring in spring and autumn.

  • From US National  Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI):

  • It is not spread from person to person, except in vary rare cases when it is transmitted through breast milk or from a mother to her unborn child.

    Risk factors include:

    • Occupational exposure — farmers, ranchers, slaughterhouse workers, trappers, veterinarians, loggers, sewer workers, rice field workers, and military personnel
    • Recreational activities — fresh water swimming, canoeing, kayaking, and trail biking in warm areas
    • Household exposure — pet dogs, domesticated livestock, rainwater catchment systems, and infected rodents
