A respiratory illness outbreak has killed two residents at a long-term care facility in Virginia and landed 18 others in the hospital after sickening a total of 54 over the last 11 days.

The Fairfax County Health Department says a total of 54 people were exposed to the outbreak - all of them in the assisted living and skilled nursing sections of the Greenspring Retirement Community in Springfield.

They added that Greenspring Retirement Community has not permitted any new arrivals at their facility since the outbreak. He said the two patients who died in the outbreak had been hospitalized with pneumonia but were "older individuals with complex medical problems". The department was notified of the outbreak earlier this week, Silcox said.

Japanese Spacecraft Takes Asteroid Sample From Blasted Crater
A Japanese spacecraft landed on an asteroid, where it will collect space rock that may hold clues to how the universe evolved. The asteroid, named Ryugu after an undersea dragon palace in a Japanese folktale, is about 300 million kilometres from Earth.

"In keeping with this commitment the community has acted with an abundance of caution, and in partnership with the Fairfax County Department of Health, has taken all necessary measures to fully implement proven infection prevention and control strategies", the statement said.

The health department said that although there had been no new hospitalizations in the "past couple of days", residents were still getting sick in the outbreak. But health officials usually see about five to 10 outbreaks a year in the winter and flu season.

The Fairfax County Health Department said it is investigating the incident.
