It turns out, Jack Osbourne had leech bites at the bottom of his feet. While exploring in the jungle, he stepped in a puddle that had rat urine in it. This one misstep set this whole terrible experience in motion.

Some symptoms of Leptospirosis include fever, vomiting, chills, and jaundice. What makes this tricky is that not everyone who gets infected shows symptoms. According to the CDC, if not taken care of, this can lead to kidney damage, meningitis, liver failure, respiratory distress, and death.
