“Apparently there’s something wrong with the water system: ‘Polluted water is causing 60 per cent more hospital admissions than a decade ago, official figures show. The number of people admitted to hospital for water-borne diseases – including dysentery and Weil’s disease – has increased from 2,085 people in 2010-11 to 3,286 in 2022-23, according to NHS statistics.’ OK. Weil’s Disease has been rising in incidence for well over a decade, from 2018 …. We’d like to know why of course. Perhaps more rats, perhaps different rats, perhaps councils aren’t controlling rats. And we are also told that dysentery cases are up — perhaps it’s just more people going to waters where Weil’s and dysentery can be caught?” (03/31/24)
