Hello. My name is ***** ***** and I just read through your question.

I am sorry you husband is not feeling well. if he truly believes he has legionnaires, it is important he return to his doctor and let him now. This can be tested for. If a test is done and it is positive, he needs to be treated and others who worked on or near the compressor would need to be informed.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
