海外军团菌疫情:2015年9月2日,美国伊利诺州军团病再添1例死亡病例和4例新增病例

2015年9月2日,美国伊利诺州军团病再添1例死亡病例和4例新增病例,死亡病例总数增至8人。上周在有129年历史的退伍军人之家暴发的军团病已导致49人患病。虽然不在同一地点,但在同一城市。

详见下文:
 
The state public health director has warned that more fatalities could occur since the disease has a two-week incubation period.
 
As of Wednesday, 49 people have been sickened in Quincy— 45 of whom lived at the state facility. Similar outbreaks have been reported in California and
New York.
 
Legionnaires' experts at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said the outbreak prevalence so far this year is not unusual, but that the
number of patients involved is larger than typically seen. The outbreak was first identified in Illinois late last week after an initial case at the home
in early August; its source remains undetermined.
 
An epidemiological team from the CDC remains at the 129-year-old facility to assist the state investigation.
 
Those who exhibit symptoms — such as breathing difficulties, coughing, fever and muscle aches — are monitored closely, and infected patients are treated
with antibiotics, said Ryan Yantis, a Department of Veterans Affairs spokesman.
 
Dr. Nirav Shah, Illinois' public health director, said that officials "do not believe there is an increased risk of Legionnaires' disease to the Quincy
community."
 
That forecast was tempered Wednesday by an update from the state VA that noted no residents of the veterans home had been referred to the local hospital
with symptoms in the past 48 hours. Hours later, the state reported the additional death — while also noting that on average 200 people in Illinois are
sickened from the disease each year, with Adams County reporting infections in three of the past six years.
 
Legionnaires' disease is mostly contracted through inhaling bacteria that thrives in warm water. People can get sick if they inhale mist or vapor from contaminated
water systems.
 
Residents of the veterans home are relying on bottled water and sponge baths as a precaution. The facility has cleaned its hot water tanks and air conditioning
system, and has shut down decorative and drinking water fountains and other potential sources of aerosolized water.
