A pool of water near the Dead Sea has recently turned blood red in color. According to Jordanian media, the Jordanian Water Ministry dispatched technical teams on Saturday to collect samples and determine the cause of the colour change.
Jordan’s Water Ministry dispatched technical teams to the area over the weekend to collect pond samples, according to the official Petra News agency. The ministry claims that the small pond is completely isolated from the Dead Sea.
According to the water ministry, the results of the samples will be released in a few days.
Locals shared photos of the blood red water on social media, wondering what caused the color change.

The Dead Sea is not a sea at all, but rather a landlocked lake surrounded by Jordan, Israel, and Palestine. The only water coming in is from the Jordan River, and there is no way out.
