I had a friend that recently passed from Legionnaire's disease. What is it and how do you get it?



Legionnaires' disease is a type of pneumonia caused by legionella bacteria.

You usually get it by breathing in mist from water that contains the bacteria.

The mist may come from hot tubs, showers, or air-conditioning units.

The bacteria don't spread from person to person.
