The first thing that comes to mind is the Biblical plague in Egypt when people talk about a river turning red with blood.
A river in Israel has turned blood-red and is prompting fears of an imminent (major environmental disaster)
A horrified local photographer described the redness of Nahal Alexander waterway “like the Bible’s plague of blood in Egypt”.
The river is loved for its beauty and wildlife but recently, it has been polluted with blood-filled water.
The blood pollution is happening at a time when the world is currently battling the novel coronavirus pandemic.
The campaign group has urged leaders to “realise how vital nature is to our wellbeing and act to make sure ecological plagues like this don’t happen again.”
Calls have also been made to the Environmental Protection to deal with the issue.
