    Legionärskrankheit in Patong -- Hotel Grand Tropicana

    wie Thaivisa schreibt, wurde das Hotel Grand Tropicana in Patong geschlossen, nachdem einige Finnen die Legionärskrankheit mit nach Hause brachten...

    BREAKING NEWS:
    Nordic tourists acquire Legionnaires´ disease in Thailand
    Legionella may hinder trips to Phuket

    PHUKET: -- Some of the winter holidaymakers who have booked their trips to Phuket through the Finnish travel operator Aurinkomatkat may have to cancel their vacation entirely or at least change their destination, as all hotels in Phuket are filled to capacity.

    All Finns resident in the Grand Tropicana Hotel in Patong are being transferred to other accommodation, and the popular beach resort hotel will not be used until it has been satisfactorily demonstrated whether or not dangerous Legionella bacteria are hiding in its water and air-conditioning systems.

    It has been confirmed so far that four Nordic tourists aged 24 to 66 have contracted Legionnaires´ disease after staying in the hotel.

    In addition, a Finnish traveller who was resident at the hotel about a year ago evidently fell ill with the disease.

    Furthermore, another Finn with a high temperature who recently returned from Phuket was being examined on Wednesday, but it could not be established whether or not he had Legionnaires´ disease, and he was released from the hospital.

    The water samples from the hotel have not been processed yet.

    So far Aurinkomatkat has found new accommodation for about 140 travellers of the 300 Finns who were staying at the Grand Tropicana Hotel at the beginning of the week. Efforts are being made to find another hotel also for the remaining residents, says Tuomo Meretniemi from Aurinkomakat.

    New holidaymakers are flying from Finland to Phuket almost every day. All of them are contacted personally prior to their departure in order to negotiate the hotel situation, Meretniemi reports.

    Furthermore, Aurinkomatkat has sent letters to around 1,500 clients who have been resident in the hotel since November 20th, advising all persons who have fallen ill with fever of more than 38°C either during the trip or within 14 days after leaving the hotel to go to the doctor immediately. However, if the symptoms have already disappeared, there is no need to seek medical care.

    The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) monitors diseases contracted by the citizens of the European Union´s member-states while travelling. The connection between the Legionella patients - the hotel in Phuket - was detected through the ECDC network. The centre also cooperates with the World Health Organisation WHO.

    On Thursday, epidemiologist Tran Minh Nhu Nguyen from the National Public Health Institute participated in a phone conference organized by the ECDC. It was stated that even though the water samples taken at the hotel proved negative, there is no knowing whether or not the disease was contracted at that hotel. Hence the situation will take weeks, the epidemiologist predicts.

    However, there is no need to cancel any trips to Thailand because of the outbreak of Legionnaires´ disease, the Norwegian authorities have assured citizens.

    Nordic tourists acquire Legionnaires´ disease in Thailand

    PHUKET: -- The transfers of hundreds of Finnish tourists have begun from a hotel in Phuket to other accommodation, following an outbreak of Legionnaires´ disease in the popular beach resort hotel.

    Two Finns, one Norwegian, and two Swedish tourists have fallen ill with pneumonia caused by Legionella bacteria, after having stayed at the Phuket Grand Tropicana Hotel in Patong Beach, Phuket. All had been resident at the hotel in the period since November 20th.

    Legionnaires´ disease does not necessarily cause any symptoms at all, while for patients in poor health the disease can be life-threatening.

    The National Public Health Institute has recommended the Finnish travel operator Aurinkomatkat should transfer all its clients from the hotel as soon as possible. The hotel must not be used until the water and air-conditioning systems have been cleaned and appropriate certifications on the completion of the measures have been received.

    The National Public Health Institute is urging all persons who have been resident in the hotel since November 20th and have fallen ill with fever of more than 38°C either during the trip or within 14 days after leaving the hotel to go to the doctor as soon as possible. However, if the symptoms have already disappeared, there is no need to seek medical care.

    Pneumonia caused by Legionella bacterium can be fatal for the elderly with heart and lung conditions, says epidemiologist Tran Minh Nhu Nguyen from the National Public Health Institute.

    The Grand Tropicana has a constant quota of 125 rooms for Finnish travellers, and currently, more than 300 tourists are being acccommodated at the hotel, reports Tom Selänniemi of Aurinkomatkat. Other accommodation has already been found for part of the guests, even though it is not an easy task with the Chinese New Year being celebrated soon.

    According to Selänniemi, the travel agency has contacted all its customers who might have been at risk of having contracted the disease. Those who are leaving for Phuket soon have been offered alternative destinations, while the customer is also entitled to cancel the entire trip cost-free.

    Re: Legionärskrankheit in Patong -- Hotel Grand Tropicana

    deshalb gilt, beim Bezug eines Hotelzimmers oder Bungalows erstmal das warme Wasser 5-10 Minuten ablaufen lassen, Fenster auf und den Wasserdampf möglichst nicht tief einatmen!

    Legionellen setzen sich gerne in den unteren Lungenspitzen fest.

    Man weiss ja nie wie lange das Wasser in den Rohren schon steht und gerade bei den tropischen Temperaturen können sich Legionellen sehr schnell vermehren.

    Legionellen sind eigentlich überal im Wasser vorhanden, nur eben in geringer Konzentration.

    Gefahr besteht nicht beim Trinken, sondern beim Einatmen von zerstäuptem Wasser, nicht bei kochend heißem Wasserdampf, da ab ca. 60 Grad die Bakterien beginnen abzusterben.

    ja das altbewährte System scheint halt immer noch das Beste zu sein, wie (fast) überall.

    Yepp. Ich bin auch schon in Luxushotels abgestiegen (beruflich meistens), aber so eine Schöpfkellendusche im Isaan mit kaltem Wasser und daraufhin Essen fassen mit der Familie war durchaus mit jeglichem Luxus vergleichbar, wenn man den Spaßfaktor betrachtet...

    @Lothar: Ich bin zu Studentenzeiten monatelang in Skandinavien herum gefahren und wenn Du meinen Traum von Zufriedenheit wissen möchtest: Am Lagerfeuer abends am See, Penntüte daneben, Angel am Mann und Fisch am Feuer, Kaffeekochen am Lagerfeuer mit Wasser aus dem See und morgens anstatt Dusche etwas geschwommen. Mann, wenn ich nicht Verantwortung für meinen Laden hätte und genug Kohle auf der Bank, dann...
