TheSpec is reporting that four cases of Legionnaires’ disease have surfaced in Hamilton, Ontario over the last two months. The four patients’ conditions range in severity with some recovering at home, while one person is still in the intensive care unit of a hospital.

Public health officials are investigating each case, but they have not found significant links between the four cases and are looking at cooling towers in relevant areas. The four patients reside in different sections of the city.
