An additional case of legionellosis, or Legionnaires’ disease, has been reported in the Baltimore, Maryland outbreak that originated, allegedly, from the senior living complex of an apartment building. This brings the total number of Legionnaires’ disease cases to six, with five still ill and one individual deceased. A Philadelphia-based company that specializes in treating legionella-infected buildings has been hired to clean the apartment complex’s water and ventilation systems. In the meantime, residents have been given the option of moving out of their apartments without forfeiting their security deposits. Officials are hoping the spread of the disease has been contained now that they system is being treated. In addition, the apartment’s management company is providing surgical masks for residents to wear, which may help mitigate additional infections.
