Since the beginning of the largest Legionnaires outbreak in New York City’s history occurred in…
The 2nd outbreak of Legionnaires in The Bronx, which is centered in the East Bronx neighborhood of Morris Park has claimed its first victim as 13 are confirmed infected.
Although city officials claim that this isn’t related to New York City’s largest outbreak of Legionnaires in history that occurred this past summer in the South Bronx and claimed 13 lives and sickened hundreds, one has to wonder of that is truly the case.
Weeks after the city declared New York City’s largest outbreak of Legionnaires to be over, which occurred in the South Bronx killing 13 people and sickening hundreds, NYC Department of Health has releases a statement that 7 new cases have come up, this time in the East Bronx neighborhood of Morris Park.
Welcome2TheBronx is conducting research on individuals who have been infected with Legionnaires’ during New York City’s largest outbreak in history in the South Bronx which has claimed 13 lives and hundreds infected.

largest Legionnaires’ outbreak in history which infected hundreds and killed 13 individuals in The South Bronx (including a teacher who worked in the area who passed away in April),Welcome2TheBronx has been insisting that the city tests our drinking water supply systems since study after study and the EPA and CDC clearly indicate that the majority of cases originate within such systems.
Now, two weeks after the outbreak was declared by Department of Health Commissioner Mary T. Bassett as contained, the drinking water supply systems at one NYCHA building at Melrose Houses at 681 Courtlandt Avenue has tested positive for Legionella where 4 people have become ill including one before the “official” outbreak.
Melrose appears to be the epicenter of the Legionnaires’ outbreak as it has been found at Lincoln Hospital, Concourse Plaza Multiplex, and now the luxury boutique Opera House Hotel.
The hotel’s management stated that none of the cases of individuals infected with the disease stayed at the hotel.
Welcome2TheBronx has also received word from National Amusements that due to Legionella—the bacteria that causes Legionnaires’ Disease—being found in the theater’s cooling system, will be shut down until further notice.
