    5 D
    Legionnaires’ disease is an acute respiratory tract infection caused by a
    Gram-negative bacillus of the Legionella species. It is characterised by the
    development of pneumonia. The incubation period is from 2 to 10 days. The
    condition is attributed to the inhalation of water droplets, such as from water
    generated in air-conditioning cooling systems and in hot-water systems, that
    are contaminated with the microorganism. Prevention techniques are based
    on the maintenance of air-conditioning filters and water systems.
