The most avoidable deaths and illnesses.

Legionnaire's disease is a severe form of pneumonia caused by the bacterium Legionella pneumophila. It was first identified in 1976 when an outbreak occurred among attendees of an American Legion convention in Philadelphia. The disease is typically contracted by inhaling mist or vapor contaminated with the bacteria, often from sources such as cooling towers, hot tubs, or decorative fountains. Symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, muscle aches, and headaches. Treatment usually involves antibiotics and supportive care.

How widespread is Legionnaires' disease? It is estimated that about 25,000 people develop Legionnaires' disease in the United States each year. An additional unknown number are infected with the Legionella bacterium and have mild symptoms or no illness at all. Cases occur sporadically and in outbreaks.

Just today in the news it was reported that Legionnaires’ disease linked to 7 deaths in San Diego this year.
