Symptoms of Legionnaires' Disease on British Cruise Ship

The BBC has reported that seven elderly passengers fell ill with "pneumonia-like symptoms" on Fred Olsen Cruise Lines' the Black Watch. The exact cause of the illness has not yet been confirmed, and Swedish officials, where the passengers are being treated, are awaiting results to see if the passengers caught the illness from drinking water on board. Symptoms of Legionnaires' disease include muscle aches, tiredness, headaches, dry cough and fever, which may lead to pneumonia and can be treated with antibiotics.
