The earily similar symptoms between Legionnaires disease and COVID19



In this blog we are going to look at the eerily similar symptoms and effects that individuals have faced with COVID19 and Legionnaires’.


What are the similarities in early symptoms of both Legionnaires’ and COVID-19?


The initial symptoms that someone experienced when infected with both diseases were those featured below:


- Dry cough

- Fever


Additional symptoms that were shown for both also included gastro issues, however these weren’t always the case for COVID-19 sufferers. Muscle aches were also part of the symptoms experienced for both, but again, not always present for both diseases.


On the whole there is still a lot that we are yet to learn about this fairly new disease, however information is being developed every day. Information that will hopefully some day soon see us find a permanent solution to eradicating the disease once and for all.


In the meantime, we know how to best reduce the likelihood of both diseases whether it is legionella management to prevent the growth and spreading of Legionella bacteria. Ensuring that water temperature in both hot and cold water systems is regulated to prevent build-up of legionella.


Or Covid prevention systems that can be integrated into most workplaces in order to actively monitor occupants, whether it be through thermal monitoring, identifying any irregularities in the body temperature of entrants. Or Air quality to cleanse the air and best prevent spreading of the virus inside the building.
