According to media reports, two cases of Legionnaires’ disease have been diagnosed within the past week at O’Bleness Memorial Hospital in Athens, Ohio. One of the victims is a graduate student in the School of Film at Ohio University and the other lives outside of Athens County. Investigators are currently attempting to identify possible sources of the bacterium. Legionnaires’ disease has an incubation period of 2 to 14 days, so if the victims were in fact sickened by the same source, they must have visited the same area with the last two weeks. Updates will be made when they become available.
