As Mayor Bill de Blasio and city leaders announced a plan this week to combat the disease by tightening regulation of cooling towers, the pace and breadth of the outbreak was still sinking in for many New Yorkers, especially in the Bronx. The disease is believed to be contracted by inhaling contaminated mists from water sources harboring the bacteria, such as air-conditioning systems, indoor plumbing, fountains and whirlpools.

..

City health officials have said they are confident they have identified and addressed the source of the outbreak, but they have not determined which of the cooling towers might be responsible.

..

On Wednesday, the owner and operator of the Brook, an apartment building near the Opera House Hotel, said that three of the buildings residents had contracted the disease. The building, on East 148th Street, houses low-income and formerly homeless people.

..

City health officials have declined to release the names of the eight people who have died, and would not confirm that Mr. Quiles was among them.

Ms. Ramirez said that Mr. Quiles complained of feeling faint on Monday, July 20, and was taken by ambulance first to Lincoln Medical and Mental Health Center, which was crowded, and then to St. Barnabas Hospital. She said he stayed there overnight, and returned home Tuesday. On Wednesday, he got to her mothers house by bus, but had to be driven home because he was not feeling well.

..

On Thursday, he did not come at all. That was how we found out something was wrong, Ms. Ramirez said.

..

Ms. Ramirez, her mother and her brother went to Mr. Quiless apartment building. They had to ask someone to let them in because Mr. Quiles was too weak to walk to the door to open it. He was taken to Montefiore Medical Center.

..

After he had been at Montefiore for more than a week, Ms. Ramirez said that her family was told he had Legionnaires disease and that he would not recover.

..

He died the next day, Aug. 2.
