New Report Reveals Water Sanitation Threats in the Brazil Olympics 2016

Get to know more about HealthyWiser’s TDS EC meter


Scottsdale, AZ -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/05/2016 -- The biggest sporting event in the world, the 2016 Olympics, is eagerly anticipated by sporting fans. But aside from just taking part in the celebration, attendees should be sure that the water system at the venues is safe to use.

Recently, reports of deaths due to the deadly disease caused by Zika virus went out, especially in Brazil. Some athletes are reportedly not joining the Olympics due to the threats from the virus.

The water supply in the venues is another concern. It is also an issue in the venues where visitors are going to stay.

In an exclusive report on Reuters, experts have found that the beaches in Rio Janeiro are deemed unsafe because of the "super bacteria." These beaches are the venues of the water sports.

Authorities are concerned because these venues are going to hold the rowing and canoeing events as well.

"The findings from two unpublished academic studies seen by Reuters concern Rio's most popular spots for tourists and greatly increase the areas known to be infected by the microbes normally found only in hospitals," the report stated.

The report also noted that the waterways of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil are also deemed "unsafe" because of contaminated sewage systems.

The dangerous bacteria can cause issues in the bloodstream, pulmonary problems, gastrointestinal, urinary issues and others such as meningitis. The bacteria are also reported to be fatal.

How HealthyWiser can help

Visitors are advised to bring with them a water testing device, such as HealthyWiser's TDS meter.

HealthyWiser's TDS meter is a professional-grade water testing kit that is very portable. It can be slipped inside travel bags since they are of the same size or even smaller than the smartphones.
