How to get rid of water-sucking bacteria in your tap

A new strain of the bacterium that causes the condition tap water can harbour has been identified in a growing number of countries.

This new strain, dubbed the Puerto Rico strain, was found in more than half of the tap water samples tested in the country in 2016, according to a study by researchers at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The researchers say they think the strain is a variant of P. falciparum, the caused by the bacterion Clostridium perfringens, which causes diarrhoea, vomiting, and colitis in humans.

The new strain is more closely related to a strain of Clothobacterium bacteremia that was discovered in the US last year, but is believed to be related to the new strain.

Pfringens is the causative agent of diarrhoeas in humans and in some animals.

Cluster B infections are a major cause of diarrhoeal disease in developing countries, and are among the main causes of diarrhagic gastroenteritis, or gastroenteropneumonia.

New Zealand had the highest rate of Cluster B infections of any country tested, with over 17 per cent of people reporting symptoms of the infection, according the study.

There is no known cure for Cluster B infection, and in severe cases, death is predicted.

Australia also had high rates of Cluster A infections, with more than 9 per cent reporting symptoms.

“We think that this strain has the potential to spread through the tap network,” UNSW microbiologist Matthew McNeill said in a statement.

It’s important to note that Cluster A bacteria is not considered a major pathogen in humans, and there is no evidence that the new variant has any impact on health outcomes, the researchers wrote.

What to do if you’re sick from Clustrum: The US Centers to Prevent and Control (CDC) has issued a warning to all tap-water users to avoid drinking tap water that contains Cluster A or Cluster B bacteria.

Health officials say this is due to the bacteria causing the diarrhoeic symptoms that can occur when consuming contaminated water, such as diarrhoeaa and vomiting.

If you have symptoms that resemble Cluster B, you should get tested for it.

However, you can also wash your hands after touching water with any bacteria and do so in a sanitary manner.

People with symptoms that do not resemble Cluster A should not drink tap water.

Some of the other symptoms associated with Cluster A are diarrhoeacism, vomiting and diarrhoeatitis.

Australian and New Zealand tap-river water is a different strain of Cluster E, the bacteria that causes gastroenteric infections, and it has been found in about a quarter of all water samples in the two countries.
