According to reports, following an August pool party more than 50 people fell ill and more than 20 confirmed cases were linked to the leisure center in Merthyr Tydfil. Eight of those who became ill were kept in isolation. After a second outbreak occurred approximately one month later, all pools were closed temporarily.
