An increase of cases of Legionnaires’ disease − compared with previous years − is reported in EU travellers returning from Dubai. Twenty-six cases with onset of illness since 1 October 2016 were reported. Further cases with onset in recent weeks are being reported following travel to Dubai, indicating that there is a persistent common source of Legionella exposure.
