Raymond Chieng, S; et al..
Pass.. By Earwig's Copyvio Detector, the relevant matches came from sites that presumably have copied their texts from the corresponding Wikipedia page (Wikipedia:Leptospirosis). This page is appropriately attributed in the author field of this submission. Mikael Häggström (discuss • contribs) 12:28, 31 July 2019 (UTC)
Updating the pre-print to reflect the GA status of tha article
The original wikipage of the article has been reviwed by Ajpolino on 19 August 2019 and is now passed as Good Article.

I have noticed that the Wikipedia article, hence the manuscript, contains a number typographical mistakes and outdated information. I would suggest the author(s) to look into these issues (the Wikipedia article has been edited for example):
- So many stray capitalisation, particularly scientific terminologies.
- Redundant citation of the same reference in flowing sentences; e.g. Ref 1 is four times in a row in the abstract, where the last one is enough.
- Leptospira is now a lot more that "22 species", see Vincent at al., 2019 (DOI 10.1371/journal.pntd.0007270).
- Genetics may also be updated such as with Nieves at al., 2019 (DOI 10.1128/MRA.00893-19).
- Cellular invasion is also a bit outdated, at least consider cell adhesion mechanism like Devaux at al., 2019 (DOI 10.3389/fmicb.2019.02598)
- Stray capitalisation issues addressed.
- Redundant citations removed.
- Added Caimi review 2020 which stated that Leptospira bacteria has 66 species.
- Added Caimi review 2020 and several new methods of analysis are presented under "Diagnosis"-"Others" section.
- Added the Devaux et al cellular invasion mechanism.
