We would like to remark Dr. Catia Sousa Pinto&quot;s participation, Director General of Epidemiology in Portugal, who presented data on the large Legionella outbreak that occurred near Lisbon in 2014. Her presentation revealed the great job her department performed when they faced a health crisis that affected more than 400 people.
