Welcome to the UV-Guard newsletter. This month sees us highlighting the dangers of an organism known as ‘the brain eating parasite’. We also let you know our Christmas period operating hours.

‘The brain eating parasite’ - Amoeba, Naegleria Fowleri 


You may have read our newsletter last year where we discussed the potential dangers of the Ameoba, Naegleria Fowleri parasite. Due to recent incidents in both Australia and America, we feel we should touch on this topic again.

A Queensland mother of a child who fell victim to the parasite back in 2015 has issued a warning to other parents. Her child contracted Amoeba, Naegleria Fowleri after playing with a garden hose.
Another case was at a North Carolina waterpark this year. A young adult passed away after contracting the parasite whilst partaking in white water activities.

The parasite can enter the brain of a child or young adult through an under developed bone in the nose and thrives in warm fresh water sources.


These two examples show that any child or young adult is at risk if they come into contact with water that has not been sufficiently treated.
UV Disinfection is a cost effective and safe measure to safeguard against the Amoeba, Naegleria Fowleri parasite. A relatively high UV dose is required for protection against the parasite when it is in the cyst form and care must be taken to ensure that the correct pre-treatment is provided.

Talk to a UV-Guard engineer to ensure you are protected!
