    Am I reading this correctly? The bacteria is now occurring in inland waterways? Yes, Green River in Kentucky.

    Flesh-eating bacteria map in the USA: Here’s all the places where people have reported contracting flesh-eating bacteria in 2019

    Jul 24, 2019

    Each summer, as the waters along the U.S. coastline heat up, cases of flesh-eating bacteria start to grow.

    The parasite thrives in water with temperatures that stay above 55 degrees year round, making the southern portion of the Atlantic coastline a common source of cases.

    Map showing all the places where people have reported contracting flesh-eating bacteria in 2019 in the USA. Map via People In 2019, several people or their families have spoken out about contracting a flesh-eating bacteria. In most cases, after a day out on the water in places like Florida, Texas and Maryland, they required a significant hospital stay and often surgery.

    For three people, they sadly died after contracting the most severe type of flesh-eating bacteria, necrotizing fasciitis — a rare but deadly disease where the bacteria attacks the skin and soft tissue, causing it to decay and leading the organs to shut down.

    Of the reported cases, six occurred in the Gulf of Mexico, where flesh-eating bacteria, especially the vibrio species, have thrived for years because of the year-round warm waters. In April, a man fishing in Ozona, Florida, contracted the bacteria. Two months later, the same thing happened to a 12-year-old girl vacationing in Destin, Florida. Just a few days later, a 77-year-old woman died after walking along Coquina Beach on Anna Maria Island in the same state.

    After the Fourth of July weekend, five people developed flesh-eating bacteria — a man in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida, a woman in California, and two men who died from necrotizing fasciitis, one in Okaloosa County, Florida and another on Magnolia Beach in Texas.

    Cases from other areas include one in Waterloo, Alabama, along the Tennessee River, another at Ocean View Beach near Norfolk, Virginia, one in Ocean City, Maryland and another from the Green River in Kentucky.

    While most cases are in the southern part of the Eastern Seaboard, the flesh-eating bacteria vibrio is spreading north. Between 2017 and 2018, there were five cases where people contracted the bacteria in the Delaware Bay, or near Delaware and New Jersey.

    We believe that clinicians should be aware of the possibility that V. vulnificus infections are occurring more frequently outside traditional geographic areas,” the authors wrote.

    Still, the most deadly form, necrotizing fasciitis, is very rare, with just 20,000 cases a year, and people should not spend their lives fearing the water. Chances of contracting it is unlikely, especially if you’re healthy and have a strong immune system.

    Practicing good hygiene is crucial in prevention. Make sure to shower after going in the water, and properly care for any and all wounds — which includes keeping them covered with dry, clean bandages. Those with open wounds and active infections should avoid bodies of water, especially swimming pools and hot tubs.

    I believe the pig is an abomination. (Isaiah 66:3 / 66:17)

    Even today, science actually shows why it's terrible to eat pork, along with other bottom feeders of the sea and land.

    You can choose what you eat, but we choose not to, at least for health reasons, but more importantly: I don't believe God ever called an abomination, a food.

    Killer bacteria leaves woman dead after beach trip in Germany

    Lethal microbes in the Baltic Sea have killed a woman in Germany in the first fatality of its kind this year, as soaring summer temperatures create the perfect conditions for the dangerous pathogen to rapidly multiply.

    Europe is roasting under a heatwave, driving many to seek refuge in the sea, but for one elderly beachgoer from the state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, a cool summer swim ended in tragedy.

    The woman contracted a strain of the deadly Vibrio bacteria, according to the state’s Office for Health and Social Welfare. There are several varieties of the pathogen, with some belonging to the so-called ‘flesh eating’ bacteria. Other strains can cause Cholera, a severe intestinal illness.

    The Vibrio bacteria can enter the human body through various ways including open wounds, which may lead to major infection and sepsis. It is particularly dangerous for those with a compromised immune system or chronic liver disease.

    The elderly woman fatally sickened by the microbe was thought to suffer from immune deficiencies, according to German media.
    Currently, the environment along Germany’s Baltic coastline is close to ideal for the organism, which thrives in warm, brackish water.
    “Vibrio bacteria multiply especially at a salt content of 0.5 percent and above a temperature of about 20 degrees Celsius [68 degrees Fahrenheit],” said Martina Littmann, head of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern’s health department.

    Several cases of flesh-eating bacteria have put people in hospitals and killed some across the United States.

    So, how common is this ? And how to avoid necrotizing Fasciitis?

    Flesh-Eating Bacteria on the Rise?

    According to CDC, there are no reports confirming a rise in cases of flesh-eating bacteria this year. Is it really a phenomenon amplified by social media?

    Necrotizing fasciitis is the death of the deep tissue. Multiple types of bacteria can become “flesh-eating,” including group A Streptococcus, which causes sore throats but is not associated with water.

    Twenty to 30 types of bacteria can be a source. The bacteria associated with saltwater and from eating raw oysters is Vibrio vulnificus, while the bacteria found in freshwater sources like the Tennessee River is Aeromonas.

    Vibrio vulnificus and Aeromonas are naturally occurring in warmer waters. And July and August are the months when the chance of contracting the bacteria goes up as the bacteria and the number of people enjoying the water increase.

    In Virginia, health officials are issuing warnings about Vibrio parahaemolyticus, also a flesh-eating bacteria.

    So far this year, nine have contracted the infection in the region and one person has died. According to the Virginia Department of Health, Vibrio parahaemolyticus is the most commonly reported type of Vibrio infection in that state. The number of cases tends to increase between April and October due to warmer seawater temperatures.

    How to Avoid Flesh-Eating Bacteria Disease?

    While rare, some people are more susceptible than others to getting necrotizing fasciitis. Individuals with other illnesses and health problems that can lower the body’s ability to fight infections like diabetes, kidney disease, scarring of the liver and cancer, are more likely to contract it.

    People shouldn’t be afraid of the lakes or rivers or oceans, as long as they are otherwise healthy and don’t have open wounds. In other words, there’s any particular risk to most people.

    If someone has an open wound, he or she should avoid going in the water. However, if you happen to scratch your leg on a broken shell while in the water, for example, look for certain symptoms to know if you possibly have contracted bacteria.

    Early Symptoms of Necrotizing Fasciitis

    Early symptoms, according to the CDC, are:

    • Red or swollen areas on the skin that spread
    • Fever and severe pain that isn’t just in the area of the wound
    • Ulcers, blisters or black spots
    • Pus or oozing from the wound
    • Dizziness, fatigue
    • Diarrhea or nausea

    If these symptoms are present, it is advised to go to the hospital. In the worst-case scenarios, patients can lose entire limbs or die if the bacteria isn’t caught early enough. If diagnosed early, patients can receive antibiotics, although it can still be difficult to treat.

    The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation monitors bacteria levels in hundreds of locations across Tennessee and uses E. coli as an indicator for the presence of bacteria, following the federal Environmental Protection Agency’s guidelines for which contaminants are monitored routinely.
    Is flesh-eating bacteria contagious?

    Most cases of necrotizing fasciitis occur randomly. It is very rare for someone to spread the infection to other people. “For this reason, doctors usually do not give preventive antibiotics to close contacts of someone with necrotizing fasciitis,” according to the CDC.
    Moving North as the climate warms

    Since the bacteria live in warmer waters and there has been an increase in ocean temperatures, the bacteria can now be found further North in parts of the country that you hadn’t seen necessarily seen before.

    Combined with an aging population that is living longer and more people taking immunosuppressive medications, the number of cases could increase.
