"War-ravaged Syria has a new enemy – a deadly flesh-eating bug caused by ISIS dumping bodies in the street.

The bug, known as Leishmaniasis, is caused by parasites. www.blacklistednews.com...

It is usually carried by flies but experts warn that the increase in rotting flesh in the street has triggered a dramatic rise.

Records suggest that 16 months ago around 500 people were affected by the disease, but that is now believed to have soared.

Dilqash Isa, head of the Kurdish Red Crescent humanitarian organisation, said: ‘As a result of abominable acts by ISIS that included the killing of innocent people and dumping their corpses in streets, this is the leading factor behind the rapid spread of Leishmaniasis disease.’"



Plagues and diseases..not something most of us wish to think about, important nonetheless to understand..how terrible;

This is the third attempt to post this story, there is an ats thread that proved this to be a hoax, the disease comes from sand fleas.

Unreliable "news" websites are at it again.

Leishmaniasis is caused by sandflies, and has nothing to do with dead bodies. It doesn't "eat" flesh but rather causes severe ulcers which can take months to heal. This obviously gives victims a high risk of infection.

It occurs in Africa, the Middle East and parts of Asia. It can lead to death, and can affect animals as well as humans. The World Health Organisation subsidises medication to treat leishmaniasis, and I believe some people are working on a vaccine.
