Seven possible cases of Legionnaires Disease at McLaren Macomb Hospital are being investigated by state and county health experts.

The Division of Public Health in the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services says that as of Wednesday, it has confirmed 134 cases in multiple states and North Carolina counties.

More specifically, those sickened were likely exposed to Legionella bacteria near a hot tub display within the Davis Event Center at the Agricultural Center. Six of those seven cases have been reported since the middle of September. The bacteria are naturally occurring in fresh water, and the organisms can multiply in man-made water systems. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), faulty plumbing systems, contaminated air conditioning units, cooling towers, and hot tubs are common sources where the bacteria can be heavily concentrated. State Epidemiologist Dr. Zack Moore told reporters during a phone conference that fairgoers who were diagnosed were much more likely to report being in the Davis Event Center - an indoor facility.

The disease's incubation period of 2-10 days has now lapsed since the end of the fair, so officials don't expect the number of cases to increase much.

A deadly outbreak of Legionnaires' disease at a North Carolina state fair is now responsible for killing two people, state health officials announced Thursday.

Legionnaire's is a flu-like illness contracted when infected water vapor is inhaled.

After the bacteria grows, water containing it can spread in droplets small enough for people to breathe in. Results are still pending from other samples taken in the investigation.
