CDC warns of parasite that may crash your pool party

OH was one of the most heavily-infected states, according to the CDC, with 1,940 people falling ill due to the infection in 2016 compared to less than 600 in any previous year.

With public pools opening up for the summer season, the time has come once again for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to issue its yearly plea: Please, if you have diarrhea or aren't feeling well, don't go swimming.

Once a pool or water playground is infected with crypto, it's easy to spread, but not easy to get rid of. Although, it is unclear whether the outbreak number has risen or whether better examination and laboratory methods has led to detecting the outbreak better.

There are various ways in which parasites infect different species but the crypto - a common cause of diarrhea - can be contacted when a person ingests anything that has been contaminated by the feces of an infected person.

Commenting on the findings of the report, the chief of the CDC's Healthy Swimming Program, Michele Hlavsa in an email said, "Cryptosporidium is a germ that can make people sick with diarrhoea for up to three weeks".

A survey conducted by the Water Quality Health Council found that 25 percent of adults would swim within an hour of having diarrhea.

While in Tokyo, Harris met Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida and Defence Minister Tomomi Inada. He also emphasized that the USA has been encouraging China to take "appropriate actions" with regard to its volatile neighbor.

Do not drink the water in which you swim. A single "fecal release" can unleash tens of millions of hardy oocysts, which can survive in properly chlorinated pool water for up to 10 days.

Some of the symptoms of crypto includes stomach cramps, diarrhoea, vomiting and nausea, leading to dehydration. They recommend closing pools and treating the water with high levels of chlorine, known as hyperchlorination when diarrheal incidents or crypto outbreaks occur in a swimming pool or water playground.

Crypto is extremely hard to kill at standard levels of pool disinfectants. It also said if you take young children to the pool, make sure you take them to the bathroom frequently as a precaution. She also added that parents should avoid buying swimming pool toys. Arizona alone identified 352 people sick with crypto between July and October 2016, compared with just 62 cases for any year between 2011 and 2015.

OH was one of the most heavily-infected states, according to the CDC, with 1,940 people falling ill due to the infection in 2016 compared to less than 600 in any previous year. For example, Arizona used CryptoNet in 2016 to confirm the spread of a particular type of Crypto in multiple swimming pools in the Phoenix area.

CDC is working to improve CryptoNet with more advanced DNA fingerprinting techniques.

Healthy and Safe Swimming Week begins on May 22. "We all share the water we swim in, but we don't want to share germs, pee or poop".
