Outbreak of Legionnaires Disease in Quebec City, Canada

Leading illness experts at Irwin Mitchell are concerned to read reports of an outbreak of Legionnaires Disease in Quebec City in Canada.

Authorities are reportedly inspecting and disinfecting cooling towers in the Lower Town area of the city and are set to expand the perimeter.
