- CDC urges the public to be careful when playing in water for brain-eating amoeba infection
A woman infected "brain-eating amoeba" while using an indoor water facility in New Taipei City in July, and she passed away as a result. There have only been two cases in Taiwan so far, which is rather uncommon among human deaths. Doctors emphasized that while people shouldn't be overly concerned in municipal water supplies or chlorinated swimming pool water, they still need to exercise extreme caution and avoid submerging their heads in the water in natural ponds.
