Leptospirosis cleanup again at Kulai eco park

JOHOR BAHRU, 13 Feb 2020:

The Gunung Pulai 1 Forest Eco Park near Kulai will remain closed until Feb 26 for a clean-up exercise after several visitors to the recreational area contracted leptospirosis, said Kulai district officer Mohd Radzi Mohd Amin.

He said the Kulai District Health Office issued the notice of closure of the park yesterday after several reported cases of the disease, commonly called rat urine disease, among visitors to the area.

Mohd Radzi said the closure would allow for a clean-up operation to be carried out.

The park had been closed for a similar reason in May and June 2017, also due to leptospirosis.
