IAQ Video Network’s Naegleria fowleri Video Published by the Examiner

The IAQ Video Network recently produced an educational video about the deadly amoeba that took the life of a Minnesota boy.

 
PRLog - Aug. 14, 2012 - Today, the Examiner published a news report about a nine year old boy who succumbed to a lethal amoeba parasite.  According to the report, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) have confirmed the death was a result of Naegleria fowleri.

Naegleria is a microscopic amoeba that can cause a very rare, but severe, infection of the brain. The amoeba is commonly found in warm freshwater and soil. Only one species of Naegleria infects people, Naegleria fowleri.

“We were contacted by the Examiner and asked if our Naegleria fowleri educational video could be a part of their published news story on the tragic death in Minnesota,” reported Paul Cochrane, President of Cochrane and Associates, the company behind the IAQ Video Network and the new public outreach video.  “These videos were produced to educate people about environmental risks and occupational hazards so we were delighted to have the video included in their report. We hope this video informs people about ways to protect their health from this and other microbial contaminants and pathogens.”
