Lasalle sees Legionnaires’ outbreak

There’s been an outbreak of Legionnaires’ disease in Lasalle. This illness isn’t passed between people, but the pathogen tends to grow in large neglected ventilation systems, from where the bacteria infect people in the vicinity. The solution is to do a kind of John Snow map to zero in on where the problem originates, clean it up, and treat the sick people with antibiotics.

I hope there are fines for building owners that neglect maintenance so much that their building makes people sick.
