Leptospirosis is one of the most common global zoonotic diseases, and most infections are caused two species: Leptospira borgpetersenii and Leptospira interrogans. L. borgpetersenii is found worldwide but only recently was identified in Australia, after which it quickly became a predominant pathogen. In 2011, the state of Queensland experienced multiple natural disasters including widespread flooding and a category 5 tropical cyclone. In the months after the flooding, cases of leptospirosis increased, and L. borgpetersenii was found to be the infectious agent in nearly 50% of human leptospirosis cases, whereas previously it had been identified only rarely.
