As if 2020 couldn't get any worse, now we have amoebas wrecking people's brains in Texas via infesting the tap water where at least 5 counties are affected.

My question is, even with the city switching to a stronger chlorine solution, the water has to go somewhere. How much of this water has spread to elsewhere? Could it be in other states? Or can this be contained?


EDIT: Apparently, this happened earlier this month in Florida as well. Dear God...
