The bad thing is so far they have not been able to isolate the source and NY just had another outbreak in the Bronx back in December and January. Twelve people were diagnosed with the disease. So it seems like it is becoming more frequent. But I am not sure on the stats of how often the outbreaks occur.

The people in the bronx that contracted it - were they living in a close vicinity to each other? Or spread out?
French researchers found that Legionella bacteria travelled up to 6 kilometres (3.7 mi) through the air from a large contaminated cooling tower at a petrochemical plant in Pas-de-Calais, France. That outbreak killed 21 of the 86 people who had a laboratory-confirmed infection.
