People may be exposed to these mists in homes, workplaces, hospitals, or public places. Legionellosis is not passed from person to person, and there is no evidence of persons becoming infected from auto air conditioners or household window air-conditioning units.
Patients with Legionnaires disease usually have fever, chills, and a cough, which may be dry or may produce sputum. Some patients also have muscle aches, headache, tiredness, loss of appetite, and, occasionally, diarrhoea. Laboratory tests may show that these patients' kidneys are not functioning properly. Chest X-rays often show pneumonia.
Legionnaires disease is believed to occur worldwide. It is estimated that approximately 10 to 15 thousand people contract it in the United States each year. An additional unknown number of people are infected with the Legionella bacterium but have only mild symptoms or no symptoms at all.
