What causes Legionnaires’ disease?
Legionella is a bacteria that is widely-distributed in the environment. Problems arise when it contaminates man-made water systems.
How is it transmitted?
Legionnaires’ disease can be caught by inhaling droplets of water that have been infected with the bacteria (for example through air conditioning, bathroom fittings or pools). Though it can thrive in soil and water, the Legionella bacteria rarely causes infections via outdoor sources.
What are the symptoms?
The initial symptoms usually involve headache, muscle pains, chills and fever. After a few days, the symptoms typically evolve into coughing, chest pains, shortness of breath, sickness and diarrhoea and even mental changes. The condition can be fatal if left untreated.
How is it treated?
Treatment is usually with appropriate antibiotics. Any complications arising from untreated Legionnaires’ disease may require other forms of treatment.
What steps should hotels take to prevent and control outbreaks?
Preventing and managing an outbreak requires meticulous disinfection of water systems, pools and spas.
