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

BBC News is reporting three British men have died and three more people are still hospitalized after contracting Legionnaires’ disease while staying at the Diamante Beach Hotel in Calpe, Costa Blanca, Spain.

An epidemiological analysis has linked 15 cases to this location, leading to the preventive closing of the hotel.

The 11 Britons and 4 Spaniards infected range in age from 44 to 88, including the three who died.

Updates will be posted as they become available.
