The second visit this year Nov. 6 again saw officials and volunteers urging street vendors to properly dispose of garbage and food scraps that feed rats. They passed out pamphlets explaining the risks of rat-carried leptospirosis.

Four dead rats were found and disposed of while more traps were placed to catch the vermin.
