"The Sands Resort will immediately notify current and future guests of the Legionella outbreak and take steps to remediate the premise plumbing system in order to mitigate the risk to the public's health", DHHS Commissioner Jeffrey A. Meyers said in a statement.

The disease is a form of pneumonia caused by inhaling mist or small drops of water contaminated with Legionella bacteria. Those 12 people with confirmed cases in Hampton likely acquired their infections from early June to mid-August.

Three new cases of Legionnaires' disease have been confirmed at a public housing complex in Harlem.

Twelve people have been infected during a Legionnaires disease outbreak in Hampton Beach, N.H. One of the individuals has died.

Trump called the allegation that officials removed paperwork from his desk to prevent him from signing it "false" and " made up ". During a meeting last July , Trump's national security advisers attempted to "educate" the president on foreign policy.

The Legionella bacteria was detected from several water sources on the Sands Resort property, including the hot tub spa.

Tests are still pending for samples taken at other locations in the area.

Bagley said this particular bacterial infection can not be passed from person-to-person.

Martin said upon interviewing the Nashua patients, health officials determined the cases were not connected to the Hampton outbreak. Symptoms include coughing, shortness of breath, fever, muscle aches, and headaches. Symptoms will usually begin within 2 to 10 days after exposure to the bacteria. Most people who come in contact with the bacteria will not get sick, although severe illness can occur, sometimes resulting in death, as already seen.

However, people should watch for symptoms for about two weeks after exposure.
