Legionella outbreak at Lisbon Hospital

A Legionella outbreak at Lisbon’s São Francisco Xavier has so far infected a total of 26 patients.

The Health Minister admitted last night that “something had gone wrong”, but told reporters that he was confident the hospital had been following the best practices.

The disease is believed to have spread through the hospital’s water system, with officials ordering a full commission of inquiry into the reasons for the outbreak of Legionnaire’s Disease.
