Legionellosis are infections caused by bacteria of the genus Legionella, generally by aerosol inhalation. With over 9,000 human cases reported per year, it is one of the most frequent causes of waterborne disease. Capable of colonizing artificial water systems and equipment containing water, making this pathogen a major issue for:
- Industries where cooling towers can generate a wide dispersion of bacteria
- Hospitals and care facilities where contaminated hot tap or shower waters are potential sources
- Public-access buildings, such as spas and swimming pools, where aerosol dispersion is common
- Fountains in public spaces
