Description:TV spot created for the swimming season to educate Salt Lake County residents about the importance of hygienic behaviors in preventing another cryptosporidium outbreak. Cryptosporidiosis or "Crypto" is a disease that causes severe watery diarrhea and can last for 2 weeks or more. The microscopic parasite that causes crypto lives in the intestine of the infected person. Up to a billion crypto germs can be released in a single bowel movement (watery diarrhea). So imagine if someone infected with crypto goes swimming, and then has an accident in the swimming pool. That's right: 1,000,000,000 (1 billion) crypto germs are now in the pool.
