The Fraser Health Authority says it is investigating a "cluster" of cases of Legionnaires' disease in the Guildford area of Surrey.

The department says the two occurrences happened in the last twelve months at the Fort Independence Houses, but it is not considered an outbreak or related to cooling towers.

"Both patients have risks for Legionnaires' disease and have been discharged from the hospital". "The Sands Resort will immediately notify current and future guests of the Legionella outbreak and take steps to remediate the premise plumbing system in order to mitigate the risk to the public's health".

The bacteria causes Legionnaire's disease, a type of severe pneumonia.

The disease is not contracted through swimming or drinking water.

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.

Japan issues evacuations for 300,000 people as typhoon Jebi bears down
Typhoon Jebi is expected to make landfall around midday Tuesday near areas still recovering from deadly record rains last month. The Sankei daily reported Kubota and Daikin Industries kept workers home from their facilities in the region surrounding Osaka.


Symptoms include fever, cough, chills, muscle aches, headache, fatigue, loss of appetite, confusion and diarrhea.

"Early test results from the CDC indicate the presence of the Legionella bacteria in several environmental samples taken from the facility's water system".

Legionnaires' disease can be deadly, but is treatable with antibiotics. An elderly person died of complications from the disease.

Bagley said this particular bacterial infection can not be passed from person-to-person.

They're not exactly calling it an outbreak, but two people have reportedly contracted Legionnaires' disease at Fort Independence Houses, continuing what seems to be a growing epidemic of the bacteria popping up in various NY facilities over the past year.
