LANSING, MI (WLNS) – In a report released Thursday, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services says at this time they cannot link the increase in Legionnaires Disease in Genesee County to lead levels in the water supply.
The final conclusion of the report is that “MDHHS cannot conclude that the increase is related to the water switch in Flint nor can we rule out a possible association at this time.”
Of 42 LD cases from May 2015 – October 2015, four were fatal cases. From June 2014 to March 2015 there were five fatalities among 45 LD cases.
Among the 87 cases between June 2014 and November 2015, 35.6 percent of people got their water from the city of Flint. The MDHHS says no community exposures were identified.
