This living being has shown remarkable resilience and ability to exploit any part of our network, to multiply and reach the points where aerosols are emitted and thus to get into the respiratory tract of humans.

Legionella is the cause of 2 diseases with very different prognoses. The best known is Legionnaire's disease (Legionellosis), a severe respiratory infection which may involve pneumonia. In fact, it is believed that 20% of cases of pneumonia is caused by this bacterium. The other condition is Pontiac fever, which is a disease that causes episodes of high fever that last a short time and usually clears up by itself.


Keeping water facilities in hygienically correct conditions not only saves lives, but also prevents economic losses and irreversible damage to ones image. Mandatory incorporation of legal regulations, good practice guidelines and awareness of the need for biological safety guarantees for people. And that failure to comply would involve civil and criminal liability in cases of disease. The need to sensitize society to what constitutes an element of risk to public health.
