The legionaries disease is a harmful and fatal disease and can result in quite the infection or fatality in people affected by wt. It is basically water-bred disease and thus needs to be controlled very importantly. It can even cause or lead to death if the disease is not maintained or controlled properly. The other form of the legionella disease is the Pontiac fever. Tis form of fever is a much milder one.
The Pontiac fever is not very fatal
It only causes a mild kind of fever, and it doesn’t affect much. The fever is more like a bout of influenza, and it cannot be so fatal and thus does not require to be taken exercise or control against right away. Most of the people who get affected by this particular legionella bacterium have to suffer quite a bit but they are cured but there are some unfortunate people for whom the disease proves to be quite fatal, and hence their result is death.
Legionella control is important to protect the people
Thus exercising legionella control is highly important. You will find d that the harmful legionella pneumophila bacteria acyiall breeds in the harmful environments of the water bodies, but they breed in small amounts.
They are more comfortable in breeding in areas that are natural sources of the water bodies namely lakes and springs, and there are some, which also breed in the commercial water bodies and have a chance of affecting or infecting the humans.
You will also find that the legionella disease is also found to grow in manmade supplies of water bodies namely the domestic pipes of water, which are hot or cold, and also within the water bodies used in the industries.The bacteria usually multiply in these systems and hence legionella risk assessment should be exercised properly.
