Legionella bacteria detected in Sands Resort water system, Order issued

'Cluster' of cases of Legionnaires' disease confirmed in Surrey 'Cluster' of Legionnaires' disease cases reported in B.C.: health authorities
Francis Osborne | 05 September, 2018, 20:39

The disease is a form of pneumonia caused by inhaling mist or small drops of water contaminated with Legionella bacteria.

The risk to the public is low but state and local health experts agree this is an unusually high number of cases for New Hampshire.

The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services' Division of Public Health Services reported previously that there was one death.

In a release, Fraser Health said it is investigating the source of the bacteria. One person sickened in Nashua contracted the disease out of state and the other didn't have a ties to Hampton.

The 14 victims are believed to have acquired their infections between early June and mid-August.

Currently, state officials, along with those from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), are working to identify a potential source of the bacteria in New Hampshire.

Test results from other locations in the affected area are still pending.

Legionnaires' disease can not be spread from person to person.

The illness, caused by the Legionella bacteria, can lead to pneumonia in people who are at higher risk of getting sick.

"In our opinion, the CDC did not let the water run long enough to get a proper reading", the statement read, pointing out that the bacteria is killed in water over 110 degrees, a level staff were able to reach after running water "3-4 minutes".

The disease can not be spread through person-to-person contact, nor by drinking contaminated water. The flyer that informed them about the occurrences says the department notifies residents when there are two or more cases reported in a building during a 12-month period.

Symptoms of Legionnaires' Disease include cough, shortness of breath, fever, and muscle aches.
