LOS ANGELES – A cooling tower that offers clouds of comfort to Disneyland visitors could be the source of 22 cases of 22 legion diseases, because last year they were close to the theme park.
In the autumn of 2017, most of the visitors visited the park. Disneyland has denied the source, pointing to three infected people in the city of Anaheim, where Disneyland is located but not in the park. One of them died.
Dr Matthew Zahn, from the Orange County Healthcare Agency, has presented a testimonial before the court in the California Health and Safety at Work, which is currently under investigation.
Zahn said during the show, the tests showed high levels of Legionella bacteria in two Disneyland cooling towers, part of a fog air conditioning system, reported by the Los Angeles Times. The infected droplet likely spread to people in the park and beyond.
Disneyland's state of affairs is attractive, the source of the occurrence was not scientifically determined.
Asked, Zahn said he could not 100% sure that Disneyland was the source without additional testing.
Disease causes bacteria that grow in human water systems. People can develop pneumonia after breathing in infected steam.
A young girl who was diagnosed with legionaries visited Disneyland after a recent downturn has filed a suit against a lawsuit.
"The deeds do not accept these claims and the matter is not merit," said Disney spokeswoman Suzi Brown.
