The Victorian health department is reviewing the regulations around cooling towers after a man in his 70s died from legionnaire’s disease in Melbourne’s north.
An elderly woman has also been diagnosed with the disease — the fourth case to be linked to the area around the Airport West and Gladstone Park shopping centres — and health officials warned new cases could still be identified.
All of the patients, who are in their 60s and 70s, are being treated in hospital.
