Health threats from Animals: Leptospirosis Food and/or water: Hepatitis A Travelers’ diarrhea Typhoid fever Insect Bites: Dengue fever Filariasis Ross River fever Zika virus Sex/blood/needles: HIV, Hepatitis B and C, & STIs Soil: Earthquake Leptospirosis Threat from: Animals Leptospirosis is a bacterial disease that infects animals and, less commonly, humans. Animals can excrete the bacteria in their urine, contaminating water and soil. As it reaches important organs like the spinal cord and the brain, it causes coma and death.

At the time of vaginal delivery, we noted the lesion and sent a culture, which was positive for herpes. Occasionally, a potentially fatal form of dengue called severe dengue (previously known as dengue hemorrhagic fever or DHF) occurs. Severe dengue is mostly seen in persons who have been previously infected with dengue – the fatality rate is about 2.5%. Filariasis Threat from: Insect Bites Filariasis is a parasitic disease, also sometimes called “elephantitis”.

Occasionally, intravenous rehydration is required, especially if there has been significant vomiting or extreme diarrhoea. Cutaneous Larva Migrans Threat from: Soil Cutaneous Larva Migrans (CLM) is a skin infection caused most commonly from hookworms. Animals such as dogs and cats host these parasites and shed the parasite eggs in their faeces.
The eggs then hatch into larvae. Transmission occurs through direct skin contact with contaminated sand or soil. IV drug users should not share needles. A pricking or itching sensation may be experienced when the larva penetrates the skin. Within a few hours a rash can develop at the entry point. As the larva moves, creeping tracks or snake-like reddish tracks will develop. Severe itching and mild swelling may also occur.
CLM usually resolves itself without any treatment. Some anti-parasitic medications may be used to shorten the duration of infection. There is no medication or cure to prevent the infection. Avoid walking barefoot at the beach and avoid direct skin contact with infected sand or soil. Use a clean towel or mat to sit or lie on the sand.
