Bathing ban - attention blue-green algae

11 August 2020, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Wampen: A sign prohibits bathing in the Bodden near Wampen (Vorpommern-Greifswald) because blue-green algae have formed there. According to the district of Vorpommern-Greifswald, three dogs have already died after bathing in the Bodden near Wampen. Blue-green algae, which are actually not algae but cyanobacteria, can irritate skin and mucous membranes. Nausea, diarrhoea and vomiting can occur if water contaminated with blue-green algae is swallowed. Photo by: Stefan Sauer/picture-alliance/dpa/AP Images
