Legionnaires' disease found in water at Seneca Towers

Legionnaires’ disease bacteria have been found in the water at the Seneca Towers apartment complex, apparently leading to at least two known cases of the illness.
Residents at the high-rise apartment building at 200 Seth Green Drive have been told not to use the water because of the positive testing.
“To reduce potential health risks to residents,” said Jeffrey Hammond, a spokesman for the New York State Department of Health, “the facility has implemented infection control measures on the recommendation of the state and county health departments, which include a number of water-use restrictions.”

obs: Este caso como muitos outros, indica que podemos ter problemas com a Legionella em qualquer ambiente, inclusive em nossa própria casa.
