Disneyland shuts down water cooling towers after cases of Legionnaires' disease

DISNEYLAND have shut down two cooling towers after nine visitors contracted Legionnaires' disease.

The 12 cases of Legionnaires' were discovered about three weeks ago, in patients whose ages ranged from 52 to 94, according to the Orange County Health Care Agency, the Los Angeles Times reported. Ten were hospitalized; one who did not visit the park died. Nine of those people had visited Disneyland in September before they developed the illness.

Disneyland says it learned about the Legionnaires' cases in late October and shut down and disinfected two cooling towers that tested for high levels of the bacteria.

According to a LA Times report, Disney reported on November 3 that routine testing had detected elevated levels of Legionella in two cooling towers a month earlier, and the towers had been disinfected. Those towers were chemically treated and shut down to eliminate further infection.

One of the three cases not linked to Disneyland was fatal, the agency said.

Legionnaire's disease is a type of pneumonia with symptoms that include cough, shortness of breath, fever, muscle aches and headaches, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The family had boarded the plane at Doha and did not have an Indian visa and were therefore kept in the detention centre. The passenger had unlocked the phone of her sleeping husband using his thumb impression and learnt about his infidelity.

The towers traced to the outbreak were located near the New Orleans Square Train Station, both towers more than 100 feet from public areas.

American authorities are investigating 12 cases of the bacterial lung infection that affected people living in or visiting Anaheim, California. "We have proactively shared this information with OCHCA and given our actions, they have indicated there is no longer any known risk associated with our facilities". "It can become a health concern if it grows and spreads in human-made water systems and then comes in contact with vulnerable persons who inhale small droplets of contaminated water". Soon after, an order was issued by the health agency requiring preventing Disney from reopening the towers before health officials verified that they were free from Legionella contamination.
