After staying at the AR Diamante Beach hotel in Calpe, Spain, at least 9 UK individuals have been hospitalized with Legionnaires’ Disease, according to Sky News. All nine individuals are retirees, and one 76-year-old man is currently in an intensive care unit at a UK hospital.
Sky News reports that once the cases became known, guests were moved to a nearby hotel. Though in preliminary findings there were no traces of legionella found, the hotel’s plumbing underwent a sanitation process after guests vacated. It is yet to be determined whether more hotel guests have been affected. Updates will be posted as soon as they become available.
