How dangerous is the water in terms of the average U.S. pond or lake? Enough to cause severe eye infections?
Amoeba was what I was thinking about
Amoeba and bacteria affecting the eyes and other organs
Well, I'm afraid the contact with lake water already happened
How long can the germs and amoeba survive out of water?
1 week? 1 month?
Wait, how long can bacteria and amoeba survive out of the lake?
OK, but there was lake water on clothing, and that hasn't been washed since (weeks ago)
Amoebas probably wouldn't survive that long either right?
