BRONX, NEW YORK (BRONX NEWS)- An emergency town hall meeting will be held on Thursday to answer questions on the Morris Park Legionnaires outbreak. This comes as three new cases of the disease have been diagnosed.

The current number of cases has grown to 10. City officials have been quiet on where the outbreak is believed to have originated.

In Morris Park, residents are on edge. The neighborhood has been decorated for the upcoming Bronx Columbus Day Parade yet all anyone is talking about is the outbreak. The local supermarket has a sign in its window stating that it does not have a cooling tower. This is a reference to the cooling towers in large buildings where the disease has been detected.

Health officials will be on hand to answer questions at Maestros Caterers on Thursday at 8 p.m.
