In the Swedish west coast city of Skellefteå north of Stockholm, doctors say they have now found 39 cases of stomach illnesses believed to have been caused by parasites in the water supply.

Tests continue in the city's water supply for the elusive parasites. Hundred of cases have been reported and authorities fear that the city will be hit with a similar situation which raged for months in the northern city of Östersund.

City residents are still being encouraged to boil their drinking water but have been informed that there is no danger for pets or livestock - since the parasite only troubles human beings.
