CDC warns of parasite that may crash your pool party

Crypto Parasite Top Culprit for Pool Related Illnesses

For this reason, parents should avoid buying pool toys that might encourage swallowing water, such as cups.

You catch Crypto by swallowing pool water contaminated with diarrhea.

The number of recorded crypto cases has increased at pools and water parks in the USA over the last two years, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

They're calling on those who are feeling under the weather to stay out of the water.

A second report in the MMWR noted another potential hazard of public pools - inhalation of toxic chlorine gas. Ohio, on the other hand, identified 1,940 people sick with the disease, compared to 571 cases for any one year in 2012-2015.

Infections can cause watery diarrhea, stomach cramps, nausea or vomiting, and can lead to dehydration.

The parasites can remain in the body for weeks and can cause symptoms to reappear after recovery.

Health officials say Crypto is a parasite can spread when someone swallows water that has been contaminated with the fecal matter of an infected swimmer.

North Korea Launches Missile, Trump Speculates On Russia Response
McMaster spoke with South Korea's national security chief, Kim Kwan-jin, according to South Korea's presidential office. US President Donald Trump is calling for tougher sanctions on North Korea following its latest ballistic missile test.

But the findings are timely, according to Jason Tetro, a Canadian epidemiologist and author of the bestselling book, The Germ Files. Rather than jump from one large outbreak to the next one, the authors believe public health agencies should be using collected crypto samples to establish a far-reaching system that can track the distribution of crypto strains across the country. The number of cases nationwide also appear to be on the rise. "So anytime we have a mass amount of people and water, we have the potential for problems", Tetro told Global News. These included 36 players and family members associated with a Little League team who got sick after visiting a Maricopa County aquatic facility. Primarily in developing nations, it may cause chronic diarrhea in people with HIV and other immunocompromised patients. In 2011, there were only 13.

CDC releases a list of safety precautions for health hazards and the increasing crypto outbreaks are no exception. While urine does not cause illness directly, it depletes chlorine levels, giving germs a better chance to survive.

So how do you stay safe?

Shower with soap before you start swimming.

Take kids on bathroom breaks often, and check diapers in a diaper-changing area and not right next to the pool.

Billups said his crew has been busy getting pools prepared for summer swimmers and visitors to the water park.

If it's reported, pools are supposed to completely shut down and be tested and cleaned, since the parasite isn't killed by chlorine.
