Dr. Asif Tufail, DG Sports Punjab, recently paid a visit to the Punjab International Swimming Complex as a proactive measure to stop the spread of the parasite Nigelaria.
To make sure that the facility was safe for visitors, he carefully inspected the safety precautions in place and performed on-site pool water tests.
Tufail emphasised their dedication to preserving public health and stated that the Punjab International Swimming Complex is totally free of the parasite.
Both pools in the facility go through a thorough chlorination procedure twice daily, completely removing any possibility of the parasite Naegleria, according to Dr. Asif Tufail.
In order to provide guests with a safe and clean environment for swimming and recreational activities, Tufail confirmed that the facility complies with international standards.
He emphasised the significance of maintaining excellent water quality and highlighted that continuous filtration operations run continuously for 24 hours to ensure the elimination of contaminants.
Dr. Asif Tufail spoke about the Naegleria parasite in his statement and described how it thrives in pools with low or no chlorine levels.
Both the Punjab Health Department and the National Institute of Health have issued a warning regarding the potential risks, recognising the gravity of the situation.
Dr. Asif Tufail claimed that the Punjab International Swimming Complex has previously been carefully enforcing safety procedures even before the warning was issued.
