As the other poster mentioned why the hell can't they regulate/stop dripping aircons?
There was a spat of legionnaires in Quebec maybe 5-6 years back, air con condenser. These outbreaks are very localized and only those from that building were affected.
Mentioned on Now News today.
- two more cases reported, CHP has attributed to a separate cluster but given their location about 1000m from the MTR cooling towers, calling it part of the same outbreak
- 6 cases have specimen type match to the MTR cooling towers in Choi Hung station - confirms the cooling towers are the source
Legionnaires Disease is under-reported because it initially presents and is treated as typical pneumonia, but during this period of intense surveillance for the coronavirus, I am sure that lot more Legionnaires Disease cases will be identified, will LD test kits be next shortage?
It's a shame that it's reactive, rather than proactive but that unfortunately just how things work here.
