There is a recent update in the Legionnaires’ disease outbreak that occurred at a senior living facility in Baltimore, Maryland: a seventh case has been confirmed. Media reports indicated that the ill individual is a 72 year old woman. In early October the living facility was the site of six cases of legionellosis, or Legionnaires’ disease. Since the reported illnesses, the Center for Disease Control has conducted an investigation, and the building’s management has hired a private firm to clean the building’s water system. After the initial outbreak was reported, residents were given cases of water by the building’s management to use instead of the building’s water system. However, the woman is the first reported case to have occurred after the attempted cleaning. It’s important to recognize that once legionella, the bacteria responsible for Legionnaires’ disease, has colonized a building’s water system, it will contaminate the entire system, which makes it difficult to completely eliminate.
