The family in which the contagion occurred recognized one of theirs who had remained still and dead, because among the first consultations he focused on treatment with a cuadro de psitacosis as the desencadenante of the situation, commonly known as “gripe of their”.

Furthermore, the bacteria that cause this infection have been noticed to affect both animals and humans.
“Psitacosis de los loros is specific to the animal, but any type of bird can transmit it. The bottom line is that there is a close relationship between them and their dueño, which makes them more likely to pass it on,” Sciabarrassi describes.
Note that also the palomas can transmit sicknesses such as psitacosis, salmonelosis or cryptococosis, because there is a permanent test in the appropriate environments, as for example the traditional Palomar, located in the micro-centre of the capital santafecina, 100 meters from the entrance to the port.

They can also encounter hongos in the fecal matter of palomas that can affect humans. Therefore, he subrayed: “In situations of health vulnerability, in a person with a basic problem, the problem becomes serious. Cuando las defensas están bien, pasan desapercibidos”.
