This isn’t going to be good for their already-battered economy:
Eight people have been confirmed ill with cholera after eating Gulf seafood contaminated with cholera bacteria according to officials Tuesday and the US Food and Drug Administration issued a warning to not eat Gulf raw oysters.
At least eleven people have become ill after eating Gulf oysters from less than 300 miles from New Orleans.
The outbreak is linked to oyster from Apalachicola Bay, near Panama City, Florida according to News 24 Tuesday.
Eleven cholera cases have been reported, eight of which tests confirm positive for toxigenic Vibrio cholerae O75..
You’d almost think something has changed the ecology of the Gulf. Gee, I wonder what that could be?
