In fact, the government does not test for viruses, they only search for fecal-coliform bacteria, in line with Brazilian rules. What the complete tests found is a real disaster: measuring levels of human adenovirus, rotavirus and enterovirus as well as fecal-coliform bacteria, they found levels of disease-causing viruses as much as 1.7 million times the level that would be considered hazardous on a Southern California beach. If this is the reality, it’s not very clear if the Rio de Janeiro Olympic officials completely understand the danger and will take some actions in consequence. If not, it will be the responsibility of the every athlete participating on the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio to decide if he or she will assume the risk. In the modern times of the Olympic Games the information must play an important role, beginning with connecting the individuals to the society in the most appropriate way.
