Leptospirosis threat lurks

Monday, January 9, 2006

The feared and deadly leptospirosis emerged as a threat again in the wake of severe flooding in some parts of Guyana. Residents were advised to take every precaution.
Twenty-one persons are believed to have died from the disease early last year following one of the worst floods to ever hit the South American nation.
So far, health surveillance has placed twelve persons in a high-index-of-suspicion bracket for leptospirosis.
Minister Ramsammy confirmed there was one suspicious death but tests are yet to done to determine whether it was leptospirosis related.

Two weeks of heavy rain in Guyana destroyed large fields of food crops, residential homes and threatened farmland and rice production.
The heavy rain caused blocked drainage canals to overflow and cover the vast farming areas.
Hundreds of small cash crop farms were destroyed while scores of livestock farmers fought to move their cows and other animals to higher ground.
Angry residents in one of the affected areas blocked roads and burnt tyres after Government ministers visited their communities to assess the situation.
The residents claimed the Government was oblivious to their suffering, while the Government says local officials failed to inform them of the enormity of the situation.
President Bharrat Jagdeo, along with several ministers and technical officers, met for several hours to discuss the steps needed to alleviate the situation.
He later announced 4 million U.S dollars worth of equipment will arrive in the country next month to be used to build dams around cultivation areas and high lands for cattle.

get some sense
The president need to get some help from other places. He knows tha Guyana is below sea level so there will be a lot of flooding. We haven't seen any thing yet. If there is a bigger flood is every body going to run to linden. Come on make sense. To little to late is not good enough for me

Flood in Guyana!
Floods are natural disasters regardless of where it happensor how it happens; what we need to do as human beings is stop critizing each others country and start focusing on the problems at hand. Bad talking and disdain will do you no good. Help out the situation if you can and say or do nothing if you cannot. Basically speaking, it makes little or no sense to say anything if you have nothing good to say.

floods in Guyana
After last year, one would think we would be prepared. In Guyana everything seems too little too late. If you can't upkeep your traffic lights, how would you keep out flood water.
