Legionnaires’ disease. This causes a lung infection (pneumonia). It is usually a severe illness which is sometimes fatal.

Pontiac fever. This occurs when the bacteria cause a flu-like illness. It is not usually serious.

Susceptible Groups, which are most likely to contract Legionnaires disease are: smokers, alcoholics, diabetics, people taking immune-suppressant drugs, people with cancer or chronic respiratory or kidney disease, and those aged over 45 years.
