La Paz, Baja California Sur (BCS).- The operations director at the Citizens Observation Network, Alberto Guillén, said hat after a study of the bacteria levels in the waters at the La Paz Malecón, they indicated more than 6,000 enterococcus, where the health limit is 200. These bacteria present on the coast at the Malecón could cause serious health problems for those who swim in the area.

He said the high presence of these bacteria in direct contact with the human skin can cause skin infections in the eyes, ears and mouth, and if the water is swallowed, it can caused grave gastro-intestinal illnesses.
