According to CNN
Residents of Flint, Michigan, already reeling because of lead contamination in their drinking water, got more disturbing news on Wednesday…Gov. Rick Snyder announced the number of cases of Legionnaires’ disease has spiked in Genesee County in the two years since Flint switched its water supply from the Great Lakes to the Flint River.… From June 2014 to November 2015, at least 87 county residents developed Legionnaires’ disease, compared to between six and 13 cases in the four preceding years, Lyon said. Ten patients died… Health officials are not changing recommendations about how Flint residents should deal with the water crisis. They should keep drinking bottled water and use water filters, Snyder said.
It’s just really sad what’s going on up there… also scary just because of how close they are. It’s not right for people and children in America, so close to home, to be living like they are in a third world country. Clean Tap water, I thought, was a basic American Tax Paying service.
