Its a sad news for the office I am working with that my immediate supervisor died. At first I did not know what caused his death. However, today at my workplace, my friend whose wife was a doctor, told me that my immediate supervisor was her patient and the cause of his death was leptospirosis, an infectious disease caused by a type of bacteria called a spirochete. Leptospirosis can be transmitted by many animals such as rats . He must have acquired this disease lately during the flooding at their place. My immediate supervisor was a good friend to everybody in the department. May his soul rest in peace.
