The Illinois Department of Veterans’ Affairs says that two more veterans’ home residents have died from Legionnaires’ disease. That increases the number of recent deaths from the waterborne illness in Quincy to 12.
Eleven of those who have died from Legionnaires since August in the Mississippi River city lived at the Illinois Veterans’ Home. The bacteria have sickened another 45 people there, including five workers, in addition to the eleven who died at the home.
