Nascimento Soares, who was speaking to ANGOP about the allegations in July on cholera cases at the site, pointed out that the study is necessary to determine if the perimeter (land and water) is free of any microorganisms pathogenic, especially vibrios choleric.
Due to the situation, that month, health authorities banned any commercial fish activity on the spot, where customers also had the fish prepared in abnormal hygienic conditions.
All bulk fish unloading activity was transferred to the fishing port of Luanda between Boavista and São Pedro da Barra fort, while the resale of fish takes place in a market that was inaugurated on November 23, 2017, with capacity for more than a thousand workers.
This situation worsens, according to the director, with the fact that on the local beach there are disabled vessels, which serve as dwellings of some fishermen who defecate in the open air.
