Legionnaires' disease hits three NYCHA residents in harlem

Legionella outbreak in Surrey likely from local source

Tenants say they are frustrated with the city's Department of Health for not telling them sooner about two cases of Legionnaires' disease in their building. At this point, officials aren't suggesting at-risk people to avoid Guildford.

The state has ordered a Hampton Beach hotel to take steps to remediate bacteria discovered in a hot tub and spa area that led to 14 cases of Legionnaires' Disease, including one death.

Legionnaires' disease is caused by inhaling contaminated water vapor, but it is not contagious between people.

Health officials said the two cases in the Bronx are "not considered an outbreak or related ted to cooling towers".

They can develop pneumonia, as well as symptoms like fever, fatigue, diarrhea, stomach pain and shortness of breath. Symptoms usually appear two to 10 days after significant exposure to Legionella bacteria. They should also seek medical treatment if they've been in the Guildford area since August 21.

Legionnaires' disease can be deadly, but is treatable with antibiotics. The Public Health Service of Canada points out it can not be transmitted between people.

It's also advising anyone who has developed pneumonia-like symptoms and who is at higher risk, such as smokers, the elderly or people with chronic lung conditions, to visit a doctor.
