What is Legionella Bacteria?
Legionella bacteria is a type of bacteria found in water sources both natural and artificial. In premises where water systems are contaminated with the bacteria, exposure to this can happen through the spread of breathable water droplets. Exposure to Legionella bacteria in this way can lead to the development of Legionnaires’ disease, a severe form of pneumonia which can be fatal.
