Duke basketball illness outbreak: Bacterial at K AcademyDurham
A bacterial infection struck 84 people who attended K Academy basketball camp at Duke’s Cameron Indoor Stadium last week, Duke University reported Thursday.
The outbreak was traced to the training room at the Schwartz-Butters Building, a six-story building next to Cameron Indoor Stadium, the university said Thursday.
Duke officials said the infected individuals reported flu-like symptoms that included fever, muscle fatigue, nausea and respiratory distress.
Federal, state and local health authorities believe the bacteria Legionella caused the illnesses, the university said. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Legionella is the bacterium that causes Legionnaires’ disease.
According to Duke, the illness is not contagious so the infected individuals present no risk to family members or others in the community.
All 84 individuals exposed to the bacteria have been identified and are expected to fully recover.
The illness is not related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
No Duke athletes were exposed during the outbreak, which occurred during the fantasy basketball camp from Aug. 11-15.
The training room has been closed for mitigation and cleaning, Duke officials said. Health experts determined no other areas of the Schwartz-Butters Building, which houses athletic offices, including those of the basketball staff, were affected.
The K Academy is a fantasy basketball camp for adults ages 35 and older who are divided into teams to play a tournament during a five-day stay. They are coached by current Duke assistant coaches and are housed at the Washington Duke Inn.
The camp costs $12,500 to attend.

84 people exposed to bacteria that can cause Legionnaires’ disease during Duke basketball camp :: WRAL.com
By Sydney Franklin, WRAL multiplatform producer
Durham, N.C. — Approximately 84 people were exposed to bacteria that can cause Legionnaires’ disease while attending the K Academy basketball camp at Duke University.
In a press release, a Duke spokeswoman said the people were exposed at the camp for adults between Aug. 11 and Sunday.
The individuals were being treated for illness after likely being exposed to the bacteria Legionella in a training room in the Schwartz-Butters Building on campus. The training room has since been closed and is being cleaned.
The bacteria can also cause Pontiac fever, a milder infection than Legionnaires’ disease, which mostly causes fever and muscle aches.
Individuals have reported flu-like symptoms, including fever, muscle fatigue, nausea and respiratory distress. People reporting being sick are either being treated at Duke or by their personal doctors. The Duke spokeswoman said that everyone is expected to fully recover.
Everyone who was exposed to the bacteria has been contacted, according to a spokeswoman.
No Duke student-athletes were exposed to the bacteria or have reported being sick.
Legionnaires’ disease is a serious type of pneumonia caused by the Legionella bacterium, which is found in fresh water, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The bacteria can be found in shower heads, faucets, hot tubs, cooling towers, hot water tanks, decorative fountains and plumbing systems.
Symptoms, which can begin two to 10 days after exposure to the bacteria, are coughing, shortness of breath, high fever, muscle aches and headaches.
About one in 10 people with Legionnaires’ disease dies, according to the CDC. Legionnaires’ disease is treated with antibiotics, and most people who get sick make a full recovery.
In 2019, four people died from Legionnaire’s disease after attending the Mountain State Fair in western North Carolina. A report from the state Department of Health and Human Services said hot tub water that sprayed into the air likely caused the outbreak, which included 136 cases of Legionnaire’s disease and one case of Pontiac fever.
Since that outbreak in western North Carolina, the CDC updated guidelines for hot tub displays at public events, in part based on findings from North Carolina, including suggested training for hot tub owners and vendors and recommended daily water tests
Early parliamentary elections in Israel were won by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party. After counting 99% of the votes, she receives 30 out of 120 deputy mandates. The main rival of Likud, the leftist Zionist Camp of Yitzhak Herzog, will have 24 seats in the Knesset, the third place is taken by the Arab coalition with 14 mandates.
Netanyahu, who announced his victory immediately after receiving the exit poll results, intends to create a coalition within two to three weeks.He has already held talks with the leaders of several parties: Moshe Kahlon (Kulanu, 10 seats), Arye Deri (Shas, 7), Avigdor Lieberman (NDI, 6), Yaakov Litzman and Moshe Gafni (Yaadut ha-Tora, 6 ) and Naftali Bennett (Byte Yehudi, 8). Thus, if these negotiations are successful, the ruling coalition will have 67 seats in the Knesset. Almost all parties from the potential coalition list represent the right-wing camp of the country’s political forces.
The Duke also announced his readiness to enter into a coalition with the right, but Netanyahu said before the elections that this time he did not intend to unite with the left.This is due to the fact that the previous Israeli government, which consisted of left-wing and right-wing parties, collapsed without even half of its term. Moshe Kahlon, the leader of the centrist Kulanu party, is becoming the key figure whose consent is necessary to create a coalition. During the election campaign, he sharply criticized the economic policy of the Netanyahu government, in particular the rise in housing prices, and also repeatedly stated that he did not intend to enter into an alliance with either the Likud or the Zionist camp. And whether Netanyahu will become prime minister for the fourth time depends on whether he can come to an agreement with Kahlon.
If there are no leftists left in the government, the prime minister will no longer have excuses that it was they who did not allow him to carry out this or that program, emphasizes Bar-Ilan Khanin Zeev, a professor of political science at the Israel University: “But Netanyahu will have a free hand in foreign policy , and in terms of economic development. The presence of the orthodox from the Shas will not add stability to the coalition, but Netanyahu will be able to pursue his policy more purposefully. ”
In the international arena, the new prime minister will face considerable difficulties, Zeev says: these are not only the nuclear negotiations of the Six with Iran, entering the final phase, but also the Palestinian problem, since on April 1, Palestine will officially become a member of the International Criminal Court (ICC ), which will give her the opportunity to submit to the ICC a statement on the illegal occupation of her territory by Israel.
According to Zeev, regarding the Iranian nuclear program, Netanyahu adheres to the position that a bad treaty is better than none, but he will seek the most rigid framework for Tehran. William Smirnov, the head of the sector at the Institute of State and Law of the Russian Academy of Sciences, believes that Israel has no real opportunities to influence the negotiations, except to try to win over American public opinion and, through it, put pressure on the White House and the position of the US negotiators. But so far, according to the expert, the Israelis have failed.
Duke and Livni – together against Netanyahu
They are united by a common goal: to end the Netanyahu era. Otherwise, Tzipi Livni and Yitzhak Herzog, who head the list of the Zionist Camp movement, are shared by everything.
He is a center-left leader of the Israel Party of Labor or Labor. She was a member of the right-wing Likud party of Ariel Sharon, followed him to Kadima, and then created her own center-right political movement, Ha-Tnua.
In the early elections on March 17, the Duke and Livni intend to defend the values of a “Jewish democratic state”.A week before the elections, opinion polls show that the Zionist Camp is ahead of the ruling Likud party.
Yitzhak Herzog, observers note, does not have much political experience, he does not differ in charisma. That is why they called his decision to create an alliance with Tzipi Livni “the correct calculation” capable of attracting the votes of those whose choice is “everyone except Netanyahu.”
“We must join forces! We must speak with a united front and work hand in hand to achieve success and victory, because the choice is simple: either us or Netanyahu, “Herzog said at one of the election rallies.
Yitzhak Duke is 54 years old and has a law degree. He took up politics in his youth, but was elected to the Knesset only 15 years ago. He served as minister of construction in the government of the Sharon government, then was minister of tourism in the Olmert cabinet and later Netanyahu. When his Labor Party left the ruling coalition, Duke left his ministerial post.
In 2013 he was elected the leader of “Labor”. But in the face of the extreme unpopularity of the Israeli Labor Party, the Duke chose to go to the polls with the center-right Kadima and Ha-Tnua.
The name of the political entity Tzipi Livni is translated as “movement”. It was founded in November 2012 and was then joined by four members of the Knesset from the Kadima party.
Observers refer to Livni as “Israel’s Iron Lady”. After studying at the Faculty of Law, she served in the Army, and after retiring to the reserve in the rank of lieutenant, from 1980 to 1984 served in intelligence.
Elected to the Knesset in 1999 from the right-wing Likud party, she soon became Ariel Sharon’s protege.Under him, Livni headed the ministries of repatriation, and then construction and justice.
In 2006, Tzipi Livni entered the government of Ehud Olmert as foreign minister and deputy prime minister from the Kadima party, where she followed Sharon a year earlier.
Skillfully maneuvering between the image of a dove and a hawk, she supported the military operation in the Gaza Strip in 2008, convinced that there was no other alternative than a military one. In the same year, she spoke in favor of a peace plan based on the creation of a Palestinian state.
Livni, who won the election of the chairman of the ruling Kadima party, in September 2008 was instructed to form a government. But she failed to enlist the support of the majority of the Knesset deputies, and in February 2009 Shimon Peres instructed the formation of the government to the head of Likud, Benjamin Netanyahu.
In the last government of Netanyahu, Tzipi Livni again headed the Ministry of Justice until she was dismissed on December 2 along with the Minister of Finance.
According to the pre-election agreement, if the “Zionist camp” wins, Livni and the Duke will lead the government for two years each.

Since December 1942, near Tambov, at the Rada station, camp No. 188 for prisoners of war and internees was set up, which contained representatives of almost all European countries, including Luxembourgers. It was the largest camp of its kind in the USSR. According to official data, 23 thousand 92 prisoners of war and internees of 49 nationalities are buried in forest graveyards.Although, judging by some documents, the number of deaths was much higher. Especially many died in the first winter of the camp’s existence, where hunger, cold, and disease raged. Many died on the way to places of detention, as evidenced by the stories of the survivors, so they were not included in the statistics. Historians believe that at least 60 thousand prisoners of war went to the next world in Camp No. 188. According to Gaston Junck, about one thousand Luxembourgers were held in camp no. 188, of whom 170 died in the camp.
In August 1998, on the site of the camp, a memorial complex was opened in memory of the dead prisoners of war, and delegations from all over Europe rushed here …
This time a delegation of World War II veterans arrived in the Tambov Region, headed by the Ambassador of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg to Russia, Carlo Krieger. At the end of July 2005, the ambassador already paid a study visit to the Tambov region. During the current visit, the delegation visited the graves of warriors who died in captivity in Tambov, a memorial in the Rada, met with the Tambov governor Oleg Betin, and visited Kirsanov, where a hospital for prisoners of war was located.An exhibition dedicated to the history of Luxembourg opened at the Tambov State Music and Pedagogical Institute named after Sergei Rachmaninoff, and concerts were held.
Since the end of the 1980s, Gaston Junck has visited Tambov twelve times, most often with cargoes of humanitarian aid. As part of cooperation with the Tambov region, Luxembourg sent here 40 tons of humanitarian supplies, medical equipment for the regional children’s hospital and a bus for the regional branch of the Red Cross and Crescent Society.
– Since my first visit to Tambov, the city has changed a lot, rebuilt, became cleaner, architectural monuments are preserved, – says Gaston Junck. – This time we came with young members of the organization to share the experience of communication. Let me introduce Marian Thomas, the daughter of one of the prisoners of war of the camp number 188 …
M. Thomas said that she chairs a committee that provides assistance to the elderly, communicates with other youth organizations, where they tell young people at what cost peace was provided …
– Having occupied Luxembourg, the Germans tried to Germanize the country, but ran into desperate resistance from citizens, – Gaston Junck recalled at the meeting.- In September 1941, the Gauleiter of Luxembourg announced the conscription of young people under the banner of the Wehrmacht. I also got into the German army. First I arrived at the preparatory point, and then at the Eastern Front, in a small town near Vitebsk … When we arrived at the front line, there were already battles. Soon, of the ten Alsatians and Luxembourgers, only three survived, including myself.
When the fighting subsided, we found ourselves about a hundred meters from the Russian positions. And on November 11, 1942, having turned our stronghold, we fled to the Russians – we hoped that they would help us get to England, where the leadership of Luxembourg was at that time.But they explained to us that this is impossible, that you can get to London only through Murmansk. And then I voluntarily stayed in the units of the Red Army.
He fought as an ordinary soldier, took part in battles. In winter he froze his legs and ended up in the hospital. There, a nurse read me a newspaper article about a prisoner of war camp at the Rada station, where the French from Alsace and Lorraine and the Luxembourgers, who are being prepared for transfer to General de Gaulle’s army, were kept. And then I volunteered to go there – to my own.However, none of the prisoners of war entered the army of General de Gaulle, and I was in captivity until May 1945.
A few days after the surrender of Germany, we were sent home: they took us by train to Odessa, and from there by sea to Marseille, then to Paris, and there it was a stone’s throw from home . .. When we returned home, we immediately informed the government of the names of the Luxembourgers who remained in the camp, so that the authorities facilitated their early dispatch to their homeland. But they returned home only six months later, and not all of them…
Representatives of the Luxembourg delegation laid flowers at the Eternal Flame monument and honored the memory of their fellow countrymen prisoners of war at the Rada station
This rainy morning, Luxembourg students met at the Eternal Flame monument. Together with the guys – their Russian colleagues.
“We periodically talk about important political events in the past. Of course, everyone understands that war is terrible. Such programs, among other things, help to realize this, to feel it more sharply, ”said Yuri Khrushchev, a student of the G.R. Derzhavin.
It can be felt even more sharply in the burial places of those who died in the terrible years of the Second World War. Guests from the Duchy are looking at the monuments with respect.
– The next stop of the delegation is Rada station. Here during the Second World War a prisoner of war camp was located. According to some reports, about a thousand Luxembourgers were held here, 170 of them never saw the end of the war. And this weather, piercing wind, freezing rain – they, most likely, allowed the students to feel the emotions that the people who were contained here experienced.They were brought literally to this station, and only then they were taken through the snow to the camp. Exactly the same path that students from Luxembourg took today.
“I think this is a very important moment for all of us. Feel this weather, cold, and this path that they walked. We could kind of follow in their footsteps. This is a special, touching moment, ”says Alex, a student at the University of Luxembourg.
Flowers were laid at the monument to the Luxembourgers who drowned in the snow. During the war years, the inhabitants of the duchy were drafted into the German troops.
