Health Department investigating two cases of Legionnaires’ disease in the Bronx

Legionella outbreak in Surrey likely from local source

There are now 14 confirmed cases of Legionnaires Disease in New Hampshire, one of which was fatal. If an individual visited this area and developed symptoms within 14 days of their stay, they should contact their healthcare provider and seek medical attention.

"Both patients have risks for Legionnaires' disease and have been discharged from the hospital".

Legionella bacteria are found in soil and natural water sources, but can grow in air conditioning, swimming pool and plumbing systems.

A hotel in a popular New Hampshire beach town was ordered to take "immediate steps" to address its water system after it tested positive for bacteria that may have caused a Legionnaires' outbreak that sickened 14 people and caused one death.

Fraser Health Authority confirmed the "cluster" of cases on Saturday, adding it likely started in Surrey, B.C., a suburb east of Vancouver.

Health officials said the two cases in the Bronx are "not considered an outbreak or related ted to cooling towers". Legionnaires' disease is treated with antibiotics and often requires hospitalization.

Symptoms, which usually show up two to 10 days after exposure to the bacteria, include cough, shortness of breath, fever, muscle aches, and headaches. An elderly person died of complications from the disease, and 12 people have been hospitalized. Those with symptoms should call their doctor and ask about testing for Legionnaires' disease.
