AIR DATE: February 3, 2012

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported this month that there were three cases of Legionnaires at the Luxor last year.  In one case from December the victim died.  This comes after last year's six cases reported at the Aria.  What do the hotels do to protect their clients?  Would you know if you had Legionnaires?

Great segment K/NPR. Kind of scary - are we at increased risk (in residential areas) what with all the vacant foreclosed houses. Many of them are not using any water so it just sits in the pipes. Will neighboring houses be at risk with some of this stagnant water mixing into their water flow?
