The Jerusalem Health Ministry announced on March 14th that since the beginning of this year, doctors have diagnosed legionella infections in three infants under the age of one, the Jerusalem Post reports. Last year, the Ministry reported three other infant diagnoses of the disease.
This occurrence is noteworthy because the disease usually affects adults, and the elderly in particular. According to the Health Ministry, proper maintenance of public buildings should be ensured to prevent future infections. Right now, the diagnoses of the disease have been limited to the Center and coastal regions.
