Hi living in Phnom Penh Cambodia and I had a friend go home with something they discribed as rat pee fever really really sick. Now I am a little worried about how people get it and how to avoid it but can't find any reference to it on the web. does anyone know it's proper name, how it is transmitted? and what animals can carry it?

  • I have heard stories of it making its way to the USA... Soda factories have cans of soda in warehouses waiting to be shipped... rats climb on them, pee, and if you don't wash off the top of the can before drinking, you can get sick.At least that's what I hear.
