Some interesting developments have occurred regarding the outbreak at the Sands Hotel. Most notable is the source of persons contracting Legionnaires’ disease not just being from the indoor spa or potable water system at the hotel, but also from the air vent from the indoor spa. This would explain the number of cases associated with the hotel by the health authority who have not  actually having stayed at the hotel but have been near the it. Perhaps of greater significance is the match between the environmental sample taken from the hotel and the clinical (hospital) sample of one of the persons associated with the outbreak. This is important because it establishes a biological link between the person who contracted the disease and the hotel.
