Legionnaires’ Disease is a type of pneumonia. It was named after an outbreak of severe pneumonia which affected a meeting of the American Legion in 1976. The Legionella bacterium mainly lives in water where it usually does not cause a problem. Legionnaires’ Disease is caught by inhaling small droplets of water suspended in the air which contain the Legionella bacterium. Most community outbreaks in the UK have been linked to installations such as cooling towers or evaporative condensers, which can spread droplets of water over a wide area.
