Update on the recent Legionnaires’ outbreak in Spain and subsequent hospitalizations.

After being the source of a Legionnaires’ Disease outbreak that infected 18 people and killed 3, the Diamante Beach Hotel in Calpe, Costa Blanca, Spain has now reopened for business, Round Town News reports.

The hotel was ordered to close its doors on February 2nd after a second round of tests indicated legionella bacteria in the piping. Last week, the hotel was closed as health specialists flushed the pipes with chlorine to kill any remaining traces of the bacteria.  According to Round Town News, local government and hotel officials hope that the sanitation efforts “close a chapter” in the hotel’s involvement with the disease, and that tourism to the town continues to flourish.
