    Leeches in Kanchaburi river can cause by global warming


    The presence of leeches in Kwai Yai River in Kanchanaburi was caused by global warming, resulting in ecological change, said Surin Janpieng, chairman of Kanchanaburi Tourism Association Monday.

    The authority involved should solve the incident urgently, Surin said, adding the matter which was natural should be tackled by natural way.

    Meanwhile President of Kanchanaburi Rafting Association, Nopporn Thawornpradit said, "The urgent measure is that the authority reveal facts about the leeches and the important thing is the safety of people's lives."

    Hundreds of leeches were found in Kwai Yai River but authority claimed this kind of parasite were not blood sucker.

    Top of the marks for using the natural english. Unfortunately I teach maths, so a resounding 11 out of 10.

    Hope you are not serious?

    Understandable - yes, grammatically correct - no.

    Ok ! Would be very interested to learn more about this creature that sips dew from leaves in the morning and survives on the occasional nibble on a succulent plant !


    Re Wikipedia
    Though all species of leeches feed on blood, not all species can bite; 90% of them solely feed off decomposing bodies and open wounds of amphibians, reptiles, waterfowl, fish, and mammals (including, but not limited to, humans). A leech attaches itself when it bites, and it will stay attached until it has had its fill of blood. Due to an anticoagulant (hirudin) that leeches secrete, bites may bleed more than a normal wound after the leech is removed. The effect of the anticoagulant will wear off several hours after the leech is removed and the wound is cleaned.
    Leeches normally carry parasites in their digestive tract which cannot survive in humans and do not pose a threat. However, bacteria, viruses, and parasites from previous blood sources can survive within a leech for months, and may be retransmitted to humans. A study found both HIV and hepatitis B in African leeches from Cameroon.[2]

    The quality of English in The Nation has always been dreadful. Coupled with the shite layout makes it a horrible read.
