About 3,600 people have been bitten by physalias, known as false jellyfish, which have invaded the coasts of northeastern Australia . After the alarm, the authorities keep at least four beaches closed, this after thousands of people were bitten by these creatures of blue sea in Queensland.
In the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast regions, most incidents were recorded by sea creatures that were pushed to the beaches by the unusual strong winds. For its part, the Australian water rescue service reported that it treated more than two thousand people who were stung on the coasts.
It should be noted that the bites of these marine organisms, which can measure up to 15 centimeters long and are part of a group of organisms known as siphonophores, are painful but do not endanger the lives of those affected.
