ST. LOUIS – Health officials suspect that water supply in the suburban hotel St. Louis may be guilty of wronging because two unrelated guests were diagnosed with legionary illness.
The Department of Health and Senior Services in Missouri said late Vednedai that the United States and the United States for the control and prevention of illness warn the recent guests of Marriott St. Louis Vest in the western district of St. Louis so they could be exposed.
The guests who stayed there in October and November were diagnosed with Legionar's disease.
Preliminary testing was positive for Legionella bacteria in the hotel's refrigeration tank, which is used for shower and drinking water. The investigation continues.
The disease has been named since the outbreak in 1976 at the US Legion Convention in Philadelphia, which killed 34 people. Symptoms are similar to pneumonia – cough, air intake, fever, muscle pain, headache, sometimes confusion, nausea or diarrhea.
Former guests at St. Louis Counties, who develop symptoms, are encouraged to seek medical assistance and take steps to alert the state health department.
In 2015, three guests at a hotel in Hannibal, Missouri, became ill and one died after exposure to legionary disease.
In the state of Illinois, the state has launched a $ 230 million plan for the reconstruction of the Ilinois Health Center in Kuinci for the care of water-borne bacteria that cause legionary disease. Home evictions have taken place every year since 2015, and 14 people have died.
