Launceston General Hospital in Cornwall has closed to the public from today after traces of legionella bacteria were found in its water system.
The bug, which causes the potentially fatal Legionnaires Disease, was found in two locations. The community hospital will now close for 4 weeks to allow a complete disinfection.
Peninsula Community Health, which runs the hospital said there was "no reason to suspect that public, patients or staff have been exposed to a specific risk of infection."
