Legionella outbreak in Scotland

One individual has been hospitalized with Legionnaire's disease and over 100 guests and staff of a four-star hotel in Dundee, Scotland have reported flu-like symptoms. Pontiac fever and Legionnaire’s disease are both caused by Legionella bacteria, but Pontiac fever is milder while Legionnaire’s can be deadly.  Many of those reporting flu-like symptoms may have Pontiac fever.  Outbreak investigators found Legionella in the hotel’s club.  In February, an outbreak of Legionella reportedly originated at the Playboy mansion.
