Two weeks after record monsoon rains killed more 1,000 people in and around Bombay, authorities in India continued vaccinating animals to prevent an outbreak of contagious and infectious diseases.
Since it began on August 5, nearly 4,000 animals has been vaccinated in a joint program run by the government and the Bombay SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals).
On Friday, hospitals in Bombay were jammed with more than 2,000 patients seeking treatment for waterborne diseases that have killed at least 66 people in the city hit by severe flooding, an official said.
As many as 20 people died on Thursday, taking the death toll in the past five days from leptospirosis, diarrhea and typhoid fever to 66, according to the health minister of Maharashtra state, Vimal Mundada.
Most deaths from waterborne diseases occurred because of leptospirosis, a life-threatening bacterial infection.
Outbreaks are usually caused by exposure to water, food or soil contaminated with the urine of infected animals, such as cattle or rodents.
Other deaths were caused by malaria and typhoid.
