Durban Beaches Remain Closed Due To High Levels Of E Coli..  Durban beaches remained closed on Thursday due to the high levels of E coli in the water.


eThekwini municipality spokesperson Msawakhe Mayisela said the high levels of E coli were a result of the recent floods in the province.

“All water activities are prohibited. Beachgoers are urged to heed this warning unwaveringly, because disregarding it could result in outbreaks of waterborne diseases that may be fatal.

“Residents can still enjoy other activities along the beach that do not need any contact with seawater,” he said.
