Leptospirosis is a zoonotic disease which is endemic in Cuba. It usually worsens during the hurricane and high rainfall seasons from October to December each year when the infection is spread via infected water, although rodent urine will also carry the disease.
In both 2007 and 2008 the RC was hit by severe hurricanes. The three eastern regions of Cuba, Las Tunas, Holguin and Granma (IR = Intervened Region) usually have a much greater incidence of the disease per head of population than the rest of the country (RC). In 2007 the Cuban Government, through the Finlay Institute which manufactures most vaccines used in Cuba, decided to homeopathically immunize the bulk of the population in IR due to a severe spike in the incidence of the disease.
The HP intervention against leptospirosis in IR in 2007 and 2008 has been an unqualified success. According to the data collected by Australian researcher Isaac Golden, the data shows a breaking of the seasonal trend in IR in late 2007 and the substantial reduction of the disease in IR in 2008 despite IR remaining the region most at risk due to severe hurricanes in IR in 2008. The details of the effective intervention were mentioned in the Cuban Assembly. Following on this experience a decision was made to undertake a massive HP immunization of the total population against Swine Flu in 2009/10 involving over 9.8 million people.
Dr. Manish Bhatia, CEO of Hpathy.com, world’s leading homeopathy portal said that it is clear that the Cuban initiative in safe, effective, and low cost infectious disease prevention, making the Cubans world leaders in this area of immunization and this study will be followed with great interest by both practitioners and public health scientists around the world.
