The Leptospirosis cases being reported in the media are just suspected cases.

During Friday's sitting of the House of Representatives, Health Minister Terrence Deyalsingh was asked by Couva South MP, Rudranath Indarsingh, for the number of confirmed cases of leptospirosis, inclusive of deaths from October 2017 to present, which have been treated by medical personnel of the South West Regional Health Authority.

Minister Deyalsingh said the cases within that time period are not confirmed cases, just suspected.

It was reported that there were 13 people diagnosed with Lepto and two fatalities.

It is believed that the recent flooding may have resulted in persons contracting the disease, as animals would have been seeking higher ground to avoid the flood waters.
