Authorities suspect the presence of a pneumonia-causing virus is lurking in the water supply in the city of Brescia, Lombardy.


Authorities have issued a health alert after 150 cases of pneumonia were recorded in a week in northern Italy.

A pneumonia-causing virus is thought to be lurking in the water supply in Brescia, located in the region of Lombardy.

Autopsies will be carried out on a 69-year-old woman and an 85-year-old man who died this week to determine whether they died from pneumonia, according to local media reports.

Samples have been taken from the water supply network for analysis, but results are not expected for several days.
