It’s time to conquer the Pinky world. National Action Party (PAN) MP Patricia Báez warned of a possible rat outbreak in Mexico City due to the low influx of people on the streets and the accumulation of trash on public streets.
Given this situation, Báez asked the capital government to step up the city’s cleaning service. He also asked to promote a campaign for citizens to get the garbage to the right place.
According to the official, the plague would occur due to the lack of food for rodents who are forced to leave their hiding places or caves to find food. This situation causes them to approach residential areas, which can be dangerous for the communities.
The main diseases that are transmitted by these animals include leptospirosis, toxoplasmosis, hantaviruses and salmonellosis.
It should be noted that this is not the first time that they have warned of the behavior of rats in Mexico City. Last month, Juan Garza Ramos, researcher at the Veterinary Faculty of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) warned of a possible plague and aggressive behavior of rodents.
