Legionella pneumophila is the primary cause of Legionnaires’ disease. According to the South African National Travel Health Network (SaNTHNet), it is very likely that sporadic cases, clusters and even outbreaks are missed in South Africa because of difficulties in diagnosis and lack of awareness of the disease on the clinical side.1

Routine testing of healthcare facilities’ water for Legionella pneumophila is essential for an effective Water Management Plan and reducing risk of patients contracting this disease.
