First isolation of legionnaires' disease bacillus from Canadian hot springs: En13-5/85-88E-PDF

"In view of the frequency with which hot-water systems in hospitals and other public buildings are found to harbour species of Legionella and the finding of these organisms in hot-water springs in the U.S., it was considered advisable to examine waters of Canadian hot springs for the presence of members of this genus.
