Philippines : Leptospirosis death toll rises to 15

Via Sun Star, excerpt :

" The Department of Health (DOH) in Northern Mindanao reported that fatalities due to leptospirosis rose to eight in this city and seven in Iligan City.

The DOH declared Monday an outbreak of leptospirosis in Cagayan de Oro after five persons died while more than 200 were infected with the disease.

The outbreak was spurred by flash floods that ravaged villages in the city last December 17 due to Tropical Storm Sendong (international codename: Washi)."
