The office said Monday that there have been 81 reported cases of the flu-like disease. Sixty-four people have been hospitalized.
Legionnaires’ disease is a respiratory bacterial infection usually spread through mist that comes from a water source, such as cooling towers, air conditioning or showers. It is not transmitted person to person. Symptoms of the disease include fever, chills and a cough.”
