Island's Legionnaire's alert

Spain: Legionnaire’s warning for Mallorca. English health authorities have issued a warning for travellers to Mallorca who have recently stayed, or are planning on staying, in the town of Palmanova (15km SW of the capital, Palma) after 18 tourists fell ill with Legionnaire’s disease on their return to the UK. Public Health England has advised: ‘people who have travelled or are planning to travel to Palmanova in Mallorca to be aware of the signs and symptoms of Legionnaires’ disease, which are initially flu-like. This is particularly important if you are in a group at increased risk of infection such as those with underlying medical conditions, smokers or people aged 50 or over.
