Two new cases of Legionnaires’ disease have been reported in New York City. However, Newsday reports that heath officials say the cases are unrelated to the outbreak in the South Bronx, which killed 12 people and sickened over 120 others before it was was declared over last week. According to NBC New York, one of the patients is a 77-year-old New Jersey woman who "has never been to the Bronx." There’s no information on the other patient so far.
