What Is Legionella?

legionella-risk-assessment-crawleyLegionella is a type of bacteria that can cause a serious lung infection known as Legionnaires’ disease. The bacteria are found naturally in water and can grow and multiply quickly in warm, stagnant water.


People can become infected with Legionella if they breathe in small droplets of water containing the bacteria. This can happen if they are using a shower or hot tub that is contaminated with the bacteria, or if they are working in an area where water droplets are being generated (such as a construction site).


Legionnaires’ disease is a serious infection that can cause severe pneumonia and other serious health problems. It can even be fatal in some cases.


Who Is at Risk?

Anyone can develop Legionnaires’ disease, but some people are at a higher risk than others. This includes people over the age of 45, smokers, heavy drinkers, and people with chronic lung diseases or weakened immune systems.


If you work in an occupation that involves exposure to water droplets (such as construction workers, painters, and plumbers), you may also be at a higher risk of developing Legionnaires’ disease.


What Are the Symptoms?

Symptoms of Legionnaires’ disease usually develop 2-14 days after exposure to the bacteria. The symptoms might be mild or severe and include:


  • Shortness of breath
  • Muscle aches
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Cough
  • Fever
  • Chills


If you develop any of these symptoms after exposure to water droplets, it is important to see a doctor immediately. Legionnaires’ disease can be treated with antibiotics, but it can be fatal if it is not treated promptly.
