Facebook Post About Brain-Eating Parasites is False

Wednesday, July 26, 2017

A Facebook post claiming that Coosa Riverkeeper found brain-eating parasites in Weiss Lake is fake. The Cherokee County EMA says there are no such parasites in the lake. County E-M-A Director Shawn Rogers says the false news story is completely unfounded, and possibly came from someone trying to create panic. The Coosa Riverkeeper says they don’t test the water at Weiss Lake. They monitor water sites to the south of the lake. The post with the false claims has more than 14,000 shares on Facebook.
