“FLESH-EATING'” BACTERIA THRIVING ON THE COAST

Not only do we have to worry about our ponds deterioting to the point we can’t swim o eat the fish, now we have to worry about our beaches and the increase of flesh eating bacterial which has infected 15 Delawareans by Vibrio.

On Delmarva, one lost a finger, another not as lucky, lost his life. Again, we are victims of climate change. The growing toll of this “flesh-eating bacteria” and it’s infectious relatives on human lives isn’t expected to slow down any time soon as climate change drives water temperatures up earlier in the spring, later in the fall and warms more northern waterways.

In one year, from 2017-2018 the number of Vibrio infections, from all the bacteria’s species, jumped byh more than 60 percent.

Still believe climate is false news Trump?

  1. Hey Frank where did you get the info that a Delawarean lost their life to this infection. The Delaware Online article from 8 hours ago states no Delawarean has lost their life to this infection.
