GLOBALO Video: Sewage in Rio Threatens Olympics
The 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics have started under a thick film of raw sewage. Corruption investigations are underway into Olympic water treatment projects that used federal money.
Swallowing more than three teaspoons of water from Rio has a 99% chance of making someone violently ill.
Money was set aside for water treatment projects, but it mysteriously disappeared.
Athletes will be forced to compete in these conditions.
Tourists are also in danger, particularly on two of Rio’s most famous beaches.
