      Hi 237heaa26

      Fasciolosis also known as liver fluke is a zoonotic disease caused by a hemlinth that is spread by fresh water snails. The best way to control Fasciolosis is use of anthelmintics. Other good hygiene practices can reduce transmission, e.g. eating properly cooked vegetables, wearing shoes, proper disposal of faecal waste, and educating people in affected areas.
