Weil’s disease is a severe form of leptospirosis. This is a type of bacterial infection.
It’s caused by Leptospira bacteria.
You can contract it if you come into contact with the urine, blood, or tissue of animals or rodents that are infected with the bacteria.
Weil’s disease is caused by the Leptospira bacterium, which is carried in the urine of rats, voles and other rodents.
The bacteria can survive for some time in damp conditions, so that contaminated water, together with the soil and vegetation on the edges of ponds and streams, can be possible sources of infection. The bacteria can be found in any body of water.
The chances of their occurrence increase if the water is stagnant or slow-moving.
It is possible that the incidence of Weil’s disease has shown some recent elevation following mild weather conditions during the winter months and subsequent increases in wild rodent populations.
Weil’s disease is not common.
It can cause serious illness, requiring hospital treatment, and may lead to liver or kidney damage, or even death.
It is, however, easily treated if diagnosed
correctly; penicillin and other antibiotics are completely effective if administered early on.
Symptoms of the disease include a raised body temperature, pains in the muscles and joints,
[particularly those of the calf muscles], and a feeling of suffering from influenza.
Because of the ’flu-like symptoms of the disease and its rarity, it is possible that doctors may make a
misdiagnosis during the early stages of illness.
CSM Ladies pond gloves will help to prevent getting infected by this bacteria and should always be worn when working in the pond and for the man there is also the CSM Mens Pond Gloves too.
