According to H & V News on July 10, fourteen water cooling towers have been disinfected in Renfrew, Scotland, to prevent a further outbreak of legionnaires' disease.
Five people have currently been confirmed to be suffering from the illness, with two of these coming from Renfrew and the others having recently visited the area. As a result, the cooling towers have been treated to prevent further spread of the disease. Since the treatment, no new cases have been reported, although GPs in the area have been warned to look for symptoms in patients.
Treatment of the Renfrew cooling towers follows the outbreak of legionnaires' disease in Edinburgh in May 2012, which affected over one hundred people and caused three deaths.
