The article is just telling people to stay out of the water! It is not giving actuate information. According to WFTV that reported the story from the News Journal. DBNJ is never a good source. The is an %80 chance of V. Vulnificus causing fatal results from eating shellfish, when someone has a weakened or compromised immune system. When, someone suffers from liver damage, which can lead to kidney failure. The mortality rate[ likelihood ] of someone contracting the V. Virus with a healthy/normal immune system is % 25. 3 articles and 2 two news reports are scaring people out of the water, without explaining why~!

Dirty Harry use to scare thugs with the phrase "Do you feel lucky Punk?"

The same applies here in Volusia County with going in the polluted water here these days.
