Rickettsial pox, scabies, or spotted fever, Bubonic plague, endemic typhus; Rat bite fever, Lassa fever, leptospirosis or Weil’s disease, salmonellosis, melioidosis.

3 VC2D VC WASH Cluster – Emergency Training 3 3 types –Body louse –Head louse –Pubic louse (crabs) Typus transmitted by body louse’s faeces Lice

4 VC2D VC WASH Cluster – Emergency Training 4 Body louse Females lay eggs on clothing especially underwear Itching allows contaminated faeces to penetrate skin may cause Typhus Take care handling clothing and bedding

5 VC2D VC WASH Cluster – Emergency Training 5 Head lice and flea infestations cause skin and head infections. Fleas can also transmit plague virus Head lice larvae collected from the persons hair Head Lice

6 VC2D VC WASH Cluster – Emergency Training Fleas Rat fleas Human fleas Eggs hatch in dust after 2-14 days Can jump up to 30cm to bite Survive up to 4 months without biting Adult flea: 1-4 mm

7 VC2D VC WASH Cluster – Emergency Training 7 Fleas Dozen species take human blood meal Can carry parasitic tapeworm Linked to bubonic plague
