Progress of Study on Waterborne Giardiasis
Giardia was a cosmopolitan enteric protozoan with a very wide host range, including domestic and wild animal species, as well as human beings. The parasite transmitted by the water route including drinking water sources and has become the most frequently identified cause of waterborne disease. The most prominent symptoms of giardiasis were diarrhoea, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, flatulence, and fever. Taxonomy, epidemiology, detection methods of Giardia were presented in this paper. The objectives would be to provide early warning system to permit the possibility for fast response in a risk situation in order to prevent outbreaks of giardiasis through drinking water in the human population.
