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!
