How to Avoid a ‘Waterborne’ Disease Outbreak in the US article By Jessica M. Alba, NBC NewsThe Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued a warning that the country may be facing a new waterborne disease outbreak after the first cases of coronavirus were reported in the country.
The US Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) on Thursday issued a nationwide alert, saying the first case of coronivirus was reported in Alabama on Friday.
The first case is a person with an illness with symptoms similar to those in the previous case.
It is believed to be related to a water treatment facility at a small wastewater treatment plant, which has since been closed.
“The risk of an outbreak of coronas [copper-like viruses] in Alabama is increasing,” said CDC Director Tom Frieden.
“We are taking every precaution and we are monitoring closely the situation.”
“We’re trying to stay ahead of this,” Frieden added.
“This is a very, very small risk, but it’s one of the risks we’re looking at right now,” he added.
Officials have warned that the disease could spread through the water supply.
“We are actively working to reduce the spread of this disease in the water,” said Dr. John M. Miller, director of the Division of Environmental Health, Centers for Diseases Control and Protection.
Aquaguard, which stands for Aquifers Protection and Health, is a water purifying process that is widely used in China.
The process purifies the water to make it clean enough to drink.
The company has said it is working with authorities to develop an alternative.
But this isn’t the first time the company has faced criticism for its purification efforts.
In 2013, Aquaguard faced criticism when it was accused of contaminating water supplies and the surrounding area with chemicals.
The company said that a water quality assessment conducted in 2015 found that its purifiers did not pose a threat to human health.
The CDC also issued a report in April that found that there was evidence of an increase in coronaviruses in the U.S. after the coronaviral pandemic that began in late 2014.
