MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Two more people in Milwaukee's North Shore suburbs have gotten sick from crypto-sporidium, bringing the total number of confirmed cases to 15. 

North Shore health officials say the apparent causes are exposure to swimming pool water. They also expect an increase in cases from person to person contact. 

The latest wave of crypto was first reported a week ago. Most cases have come from Whitefish Bay, along with Fox Point and Bayside. 

Whitefish Bay High School cleaned out its swimming pool last weekend and re-opened it on Monday. The Jewish Community Center in Whitefish Bay closed its pools on Tuesday for 10 days.

Officials emphasize that there's been no sign of the crypto parasite in the area's drinking water. 

It was 20 years ago when crypto got into Milwaukee's drinking water, causing 100 people to die and 400,000 others to get sick.
