Episode Notes
Legionnaires' Disease, now called legionellosis, is a potentially fatal disease caused by bacteria of the genus legionella. It's name comes from the location of the first known large outbreak: an American Legion meeting that occurred in 1976 in a Philadelphia hotel. It is particularly dangerous in hospitals, where patients with various forms of chronic illness and immune system damage that render them particularly vulnerable are common. Symptoms include coughing, fever and chills, and diarrhea.
