“It’s reservoirs in water. So, if water droplets like misters or steamers or cool water mist, those droplets of water will carry the bacteria and you’ll inhale it,” said Dr. Neil Roy, chairman of ER at Sinai Hospital.
Those two employees are being treated for the disease and are expected to be fine. Dr. Roy said this is a bacteria that is easily treatable with a common antibiotic.
