The Florida Department of Health tells WFLA the 71-year-old man died on July 10 of Vibrio vulnificus after consuming a bad oyster at a restaurant two days earlier.

The name of the restaurant where the man ate the oyster was not released.

Though such infections are rare-only about 205 U.S. cases per year, according to the CDC-the Florida Department of Health notes that exposure is most common from May to October, when the saltwater the bacteria inhabits is warmest.

The department's website says it is the third fatal case of Vibrio in Florida this year.

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

"The bacterium can invade the bloodstream, causing a severe and life-threatening illness", the Florida Department of Health said".

Because the water is warmer, bacteria become more prevalent. And, anyone eating shellfish should make sure their food is thoroughly cooked.

They also should not enter the water with an open wound, but should wrap or protect any wounds before entering brackish sea water.

"Most infections occur from May through October when water temperatures are warmer". 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.

Suspected cases of Vibrio vulnificus need to be immediately treated with antibiotics to improve their survival.
