MORE ABOUT

LEGIONELLA

Legionellosis is a collective term for diseases caused

by legionella bacteria including the most serious

Legionnaires’ disease, as well as the similar but less s

erious conditions of Pontiac fever and Lochgoilhead fever.

 

Legionnaires’ disease is a potentially fatal form of

pneumonia and everyone is susceptible to infection.

The risk increases with age but some people are at

higher risk including:

People over 45 years of age

Smokers and heavy drinkers

People suffering from chronic respiratory or kidney disease

Diabetes, lung and heart disease

Anyone with an impaired immune system

Pneumophila can be found in purpose-built water systems

such as cooling towers, evaporative condensers, hot and

cold water systems and spa pools.

If conditions are favourable, the bacteria may grow

increasing the risks of Legionnaires’ disease and it is

therefore important to control the risks.
