The man did not contract any sickness from the Epic Hotel, though he did stay there. In a Wednesday night press conference, Dr. Vincent Conte, the health department's chief epidemiologist, said the strain that killed the tourist has been definitely traced to a different source.
Officials have not said where he caught the bug or if it was even in South Florida.
Two others who caught Legionnaire's, but recovered, also stayed at the Epic. Information on where they got sick is still being determined.
