Third case of flesh eating bacteria confirmed


There is now a third confirmed case of a flesh eating bacteria in our area - this one in Mobile County.

Two cases have been confirmed in the Florida panhandle, one was in Santa Rosa County and the other in Escambia County.

Twenty seven cases have been reported in Florida causing nine deaths. The bacteria is contracted when raw oysters are consumed.

But recently people with open wounds who go into warm, brackish, or salt water are now contracting the bacteria.
