Guidance on Reducing the Risk of Legionella

LegionellaPage.jpg

While Legionnaire’s Disease has been known for many years, recent outbreaks have increased awareness of the disease, its causes and prevention strategies. According to the World Health Organization, since many countries lack appropriate methods of diagnosing the infection or sufficient surveillance systems, the rate of occurrence is unknown.

In Europe, Australia and the United States, there are about 10-15 cases detected per million population. In Canada, the average number of reported cases of Legionnaires’ disease is generally less than 100 per year. However the actual number of cases is thought to be much higher, as many people with pneumonia may not be tested for infection with Legionella.
