'Cluster' of cases of Legionnaires' disease confirmed in Surrey

Legionnaires' disease is caused when people breathe in small droplets of water containing the bacterium known as Legionella, often found in freshwater, groundwater and soil, as well as cooling towers, hot tubs, and larger plumbing systems.

There are now 14 confirmed cases of Legionnaires Disease in New Hampshire, one of which was fatal.

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. An elderly person died of complications from the disease, and 12 people have been hospitalized.

The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services' Division of Public Health Services reported previously that there was one death. Meanwhile, state health experts expect to have test results within the next two weeks.

The Department of Health says that Legionnaires' disease is not contagious and is easily treatable. They said such symptoms are more of a cause for concern for anyone who has been in an area where they might have been exposed.

But Bharmal is urging people with those risk factor who've been in the Guildford area of Surrey in the past 10 days with symptoms of pneumonia (fever, fatigue, cough, shortness of breath) to seek medical attention and possibly testing for Legionella. Managers of both resorts agreed to voluntarily close those spas, state health officials announced on Thursday.
