Illinois Lawmakers Demand Fix For Quincy Legionnaires’ Outbreaks
(Chicago, IL) — Illinois lawmakers are demanding that Governor Rauner do what it takes to end the Legionnaires’ disease outbreaks at the state’s veterans home in Quincy. A panel of Republicans and Democrats listened to hours of testimony in Chicago yesterday about two Legionnaires’ outbreaks that have killed 13 people since 2015. The CDC yesterday said there is a growing problem across the country with Legionnaires’ because of older veterans and older infrastructure. Lawmakers said they’re willing to shift expenses around to build a new dorm in Quincy to make sure no one else gets sick.
