Attention to Farmers:
Spike in Leptospirosis
(Notifiable illness)

[1 July 2016]
Leptospirosis is a serious bacterial disease that can cause flu-like symptoms, such as headaches, muscle pains, and fevers - in severe cases, it causes bleeding from the lungs, meningitis or kidney failure.



How can you get it?
  • breaks in the skin or
  • through mucous membranes of the eyes, nose or mouth;
  • pets i.e. dogs may carry leptospirosis or spread the infection to humans;
  • contaminated rivers and lakes;
  • farming systems, flood water, and water-logged paddocks and waterways
  • animal manure when gardening (urine-contaminated manure).
The full version is on WorkSafe NZ website here.
