Holidaymakers taken ill abroad

It has recently been reported that several people who had all stayed in the same hotel – the Diamante Beach Hotel in Spain, have been admitted to hospital after contracting Legionnaires’ disease.

Sadly two male holiday makers have died from the outbreak, and at least three more people – all in their 70s and 80s have been admitted to hospital.

More positively a few people have been successfully treated and discharged. All the people affected so far had recently stayed at the hotel, and reported flu like symptoms. All British holiday makers who were still staying at the hotel have been successfully placed in other accommodation.
