State officials say one person has died from Legionnaires' Disease as an outbreak in Hampton continues to grow.
The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services announced Thursday the number of confirmed cases of the form of pneumonia now stands at 12. Eleven of those sickened are from out-of-state, but recently visited a half-mile stretch of Ashworth Avenue.
Officials wouldn’t release details about the fatality, but did say the individual was elderly.
The state announced the Legionnaires' Disease “cluster” last weekend with four initial cases.
