Doctors fear that after the recent heavy rainfall in the city and waterlogging woes, there is a likelihood of an increase in the number of leptospirosis cases in the month of July.
According to the doctors, the citizens must take preventive measures and avoid walking in contaminated water in monsoon.
In most of the leptospirosis cases, the patients who had wound on their leg walked in the contaminated water.
Last year in the month of June, there were five cases of leptospirosis and two deaths.
In 2018, there were around 146 cases of leptospirosis and nine deaths during the monsoon season.
