Sewer Swimming

Looks lovely. But…

THE Department of Health (DOH) has warned the public against taking a dip in the Manila Bay. “Do not swim at the Manila Bay because everyone knows it is contaminated…. it is like drinking others’ urine and swallowing feces of other people. That’s how dirty it is.”

‘Swimming in the Manila Bay may bring possibilities of acquiring diarrhea, dehydration, cholera, typhoid fever, hepatitis B, respiratory diseases, and skin allergies.
