And where there's No. 2 there could be Cryptosporidium, aka Crypto, a parasite that lives in the intestine of infected humans (or animals) and is the most common cause of diarrhea.

The system helps states detect and control outbreaks by identifying which types of Crypto are infecting people. For example, the researchers said Arizona health officials used the system a year ago to confirm a specific type of Cryptosporidium that spread to multiple swimming pools around Phoenix.
The CDC said that if a person has diarrhea by crypto, they should wait until two weeks after the diarrhea has stopped to go to a pool or water playground.
