'Cluster' of Legionnaires' disease cases reported in B.C.: health authorities
05 September, 2018, 20:36
Two years ago, health departments reported about 6,100 cases of Legionnaires' disease in the United States, the CDC said.
The 14 victims are believed to have acquired their infections between early June and mid-August. At least 12 people have been hospitalized, and one, an elderly person from out-of-state, has died.
Officials closed the hot tub spas at the Sands Hotel and the Harris Sea Ranch Motel in Hampton as a precaution because the bacteria that causes Legionnaires' is known to thrive in those environments, the state said.
A Hampton, N.H., beach hotel ordered by health authorities to notify guests of possible exposure to the bacteria that causes Legionnaires' disease is pushing back against testing that named it a potential source of an outbreak.
Another disease which has made its presence felt for quite some time in the USA is the one caused due to West Nile virus, which has resulted in around a dozen communities in Boston-area being listed as high-risk, after a fourth-case of the virus was discovered. People who take drugs that weaken their immune system, such as chemotherapy, or suffer from underlying illnesses like diabetes, kidney failure, or liver failure, are also at a greater risk. It can not be passed from person to person contact.
The Department of Health found six of the 13 water tanks at the Saint Nicholas Houses tested positive for elevated levels of Legionella bacteria. A spokesperson said there have been fewer than 10 cases reported.
Fraser Health doesn't say how many people are affected, but says it is looking into the source of a cluster of cases in Surrey's Guildford neighbourhood. People are advised to observe the exposure for 2 weeks before taking other steps.
