Legionnaires' disease

A few days ago, I read in the paper that three people from my hometown, Lunde, was hopitalised with Legionnaires' disease. Yesterday, I found out that I know two of them. One is my neighbour's daughter (who celebrated her 40th birthday) and the other woman is her friend, whom I went to school with (pre-school to 9th grade). The guy I don't know. The birthday had been celebrated at a school which had a jacuzzi, that's where they picked up the bacteria. They are pretty much well now, but it must have been scary to be told you have Legionnaires' disease, as it can be fatal.
