Deadly Brain Eating Amoeba Found in Louisiana Water Supply Confirmed by CDC!

***
Naegleria-Fowler, a deadly brain eating
amoeba has been found in the public water supply
in St. Bernard Parish Louisiana. 
*
At least one death has been reported 
this week.

*
The States of Arkansas, Texas and Florida
have also reported this disease and deaths from
this infection in the past 2 years, but the Louisiana
 cases are the first reported as coming directly from
the public water supply.
*
Under CDC guidance, the water systems in
St. Bernard Parish are currently being flushed
with chlorine that is said to kill this 
deadly creature.
*
Naegleria is almost always fatal and kills within
1 to 12 days upon contact. It presents with
 meningitis type symptoms according to the 
Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
 *
Is it time for Louisiana to review it's
public health regulatory policies?
*
There may be a bigger story here. 
People are dying!
To be continued...
