Thank you for the question.
Rats are known as animals that often live in dirty places. When it becomes a carcass, some of the components in its body that are destroyed can be mixed in the water in the well whose water you use everyday. Therefore, clearly this can be dangerous for the health of you and your family.
There are many diseases related to rats, one of the most common is leptospirosis. This disease is caused by the bacteria Leptospira which is contained in the urine of rats, pigs, or cows. From these animals, bacteria can enter the body especially when it comes into contact with an open wound or is drunk into the digestive tract. It could also, these bacteria enter through the eyes, nose, mouth, or bite of these animals.
In addition to leptospirosis, many other diseases are transmitted through mice, for example hantavirus, tularemia, and so on.
Better, you and your family be more careful about this. Of course, if you consume water that has been contaminated by dead mice, then there are no special precautions that can be taken. It's just that, if at this time you and your family don't feel any symptoms of any health problems, then don't worry too much, yeah.
I hope this helps.
