Legionnaires' outbreak declared over
Health Secretary Nicola Sturgeon said:
"It is good news that the outbreak has been declared over, and as we have already seen, the number of new cases has been dropping off over recent weeks.
"We have worked closely with NHS Lothian to ensure the outbreak was well managed, and I would like to pay tribute to NHS staff who have coped extremely well with this situation.
"However, we have to remember that there are some patients who remain extremely ill, and NHS staff are maintaining high quality care for those patients.
"The Health and Safety Executive and Edinburgh City Council are continuing their investigations into the source of the outbreak."
