    People flocked to the San Roque Church who ignored warnings by local health officials should heed them now and stop using the water that flowed there since it contains bacteria

    I don't know what to say maybe the church should just build a clean public water fountain in the area so people wont be fooled into drinking the contaminated water seeping out from the concrete.

    From wikipedia:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lourdes_water

    The French author Émile Zola visited the Sanctuary in 1891 and again in 1892. He wrote:

    And the water was not exactly inviting. The Grotto Fathers were afraid that the output of the spring would be insufficient, so in those days they had the water in the pools changed just twice a day. As some hundred patients passed through the same water, you can imagine what a horrible slop it was at the end. There was everything in it: threads of blood, sloughed-off skin, scabs, bits of cloth and bandage, an abominable soup of ills... the miracle was that anyone emerged alive from this human slime.[6]
    During the 1897 Jubilee Pilgrimage to Lourdes, priest François Picard was thirsty after a long day. Rather than drinking fresh water, he asked an assistant to fill his glass from a bathing pool, heavily contaminated from the sick pilgrims who had been immersed in it. "When the father had received [the water], he made the sign of the cross and drank slowly, right to the end. Then, he gave back the glass and concluded with a smile: "The water of the good Mother of Heaven is always delicious."[7]

    Nothing new to see here

    well, if you are gullible enough to believe in a deity - you're probably gullible enough to believe that contaminated water is good for you.

    Sounds like the Philippines could use a 'miracle-buster' like Sanal Edamaruku.

    In 2012 he was challenged to investigate a statue of Christ which was dripping water. Along with an engineer friend they traced the source of the drip backwards and found that moisture on the wall the statue was mounted on was coming from an overflowing drain, which was fed by a pipe coming from a nearby toilet. His efforts were rewarded with death threats and charges of blasphemy were filed against him. He was forced to flee the country and live in self-imposed exile.

    The Indian miracle-buster stuck in Finland

    I wonder if drinking a small amount of that water each day would boost your immune system? It would be like drinking a super vaccination.

    That's pretty awful, but here in my country we have people who handle rattlesnakes and drink strychnine to prove their faith.

    Yeah just build a fountain , provide fresh water for thousands.

    Takes smarts, and money

    Some cultures are not as smart as others and have shown zero sign of positive change in over a hundred years.

    Not as easy
