So far, RM170,000 were paid to those who caught rats, said Federal Territories Deputy Minister Datuk Shahruddin Md Salleh.

There were 64 leptospirosis, or commonly known as rat urine, cases in Kuala Lumpur this year compared to 160 last year, he said.

The campaign was launched in 2012 with a RM1 reward for each rat caught. The amount was increased to RM3 in 2015.
