Legionaries disease is caused by the Legionella bacteria. It thrives in hot water. You get infected by breathing water vapor with aerosolized bacteria. It infects your lungs and causes coughing and a rash. It got its name from a Legionnaires’ convention in Philadelphia when it was first recognized by doctors.
