Most people get better with early treatment, although they may need to be hospitalized.

Statistically, according to the NH Division of Public Health Services, one in ten people who become infected die from the disease.

Legionnaires' disease is caused by inhaling contaminated water vapor, but it is not contagious between people.

Public health officials are investigating a number of cases of Legionnaires' disease contracted in Surrey, B.C.

This is a serious situation since there are no vaccines that can prevent Legionnaires' disease, which is bacterial pneumonia, caused by the Legionella bacteria.

Initial tests conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention detected the bacteria in the hot tub, water heater, an outdoor shower hose and shower and sink heads in three guest rooms.

Another disease which has made its presence felt for quite some time in the U.S. is the one caused due to West Nile virus, which has resulted in around a dozen communities in Boston-area being listed as high-risk, after a fourth-case of the virus was discovered.

Bagley said this particular bacterial infection can not be passed from person-to-person. New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services announced Friday that two additional cases were confirmed, bringing the total to 14.

The hot tubs no longer present a potential risk to the public and both hotels remain open. The symptoms are similar to general pneumonia, which includes cough, fever, headaches, muscle ache, and shortness of breath. People are advised to observe the exposure for 2 weeks before taking other steps.

"People who are exposed to it, specifically people who are at high risk to it may start to see symptoms within two to 10 days".

If an individual visited this area and developed symptoms within 14 days of their stay, they should contact their healthcare provider and seek medical attention.
