TO EVERYONE IN LOUISIANA RIGHT NOW!
Please please please be safe, there is an amoeba in the drinking and tap water, which is highly dangerous.
It’s around St. Bernard Parish, Jefferson (where my boyfriend lives) and all of the Parishes around.
If you want to drink or bathe in the water it’s recommended that you RUN THE TAP FOR 5 MINUTES to clear the pipes, then BOIL FOR 1-2 minutes which will make the water safe. Please DO NOT fill pools with hose water! DO NOT touch the water before its boiled! DO NOT allow any water to go up into your nose! If it goes up your nose within two days and you start feeling symptoms get to the hospital right away! The amoeba infects you through the nose so please be careful!
“Initial symptoms, which start within the first week of infection, include headache, fever, nausea, vomiting, and stiff neck. Later symptoms include confusion, loss of balance, seizures, and hallucinations. Death typically occurs within 12 days.”
Again, everyone in Louisiana be safe, watch the News to find out when your area is safe and clear!
