Neti Pots Kill People: That Per “Officials” in Charge of Water in Louisiana

“Officials” responsible for tap water in Louisiana blame deaths from contaminated water there on a ceramic pot.  No, I’m not kidding:

The Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals has issued a warning about improper Neti pot use, which has been linked to two deadly infections.

A 51-year-old woman from DeSoto Parish and a 20-year-old man from St. Bernard Parish, a suburb of New Orleans, died after using Neti pots containing tap water to flush their sinuses. Both became infected with Naegleria fowleri, a parasite known as the brain-eating amoeba.

“If you are irrigating, flushing or rinsing your sinuses, for example, by using a Neti pot, use distilled, sterile or previously boiled water to make up the irrigation solution,” Louisiana State epidemiologist Dr. Raoult Ratard said in a statement. “Tap water is safe for drinking but not for irrigating your nose.”

Tap water is safe for drinking but not for irrigating one’s nose?  A ceramic pot is the lynch pin in all this?

That makes no sense.
