Infection by Vibrio vulnificus is characterized by fever, chills, decreased blood pressure and blistering skin lesions.

The county, according to the department, didn't have any cases or deaths in 2017, and three confirmed cases and one death in 2016. Individuals who exhibit symptoms after entering the water with open wounds or after eating raw shellfish are urged to see their doctor.
In Manatee County, there has been one case of flesh-eating bacteria so far in 2018 but no deaths. There were no reported cases previous year, officials said.
