Though seven patients have now been diagnosed-- it's important to note FIVE are at home....doing fine.
Two however are hospitalized in critical condition.
Legionnaire's is an acute form of pneumonia, caused by the legionnella bacteria.
Because it is so fast-acting, it CAN be deadly.
Officials have been investigating all week....and still don't have a common source-- but they do believe there must be a connection between these cases.
This disease is NOT spread through person to person contact.
Rather, the bug can live in soil-- when it's aerosolized, through water...that's when you may have a problem.

Now this is going to be a very difficult thing to pin down-- local, regional and federal health officials will be doing testing.
Tonight, two people from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will be arriving from Atlanta, to help with some of the lab work.
They're going to be trying to figure out what these people have in common.
They don't work together, or necessarily live near one another.
They'll be surveying what common denominators are present with them all.

The legionnella bacteria can be spread through hot or cold water taps, or through hot tubs, humidifiers, air conditioning cooling towers, or ponds or moist soils.
