MetadataShow full item record
Manila Mayor Joseph Estrada on Tuesday warned the public against swimming in Manila Bay to cope with rising temperatures, saying the polluted water body could pose serious health risks such as diarrhea, cholera, typhoid fever, and other illnesses. The former President said there are public swimming pools in the city where Manileños can refresh themselves and avoid fecal bacteria. Estrada observed that hundreds of people, not only residents of Manila, come in droves to frolic and take a dip in the Manila Bay and Baseco shore area to beat the rising temperatures.
