The Impact of Lockdown on Legionella Positivity Rates in the UK


Impact of Lockdown

The impact of lockdown can be witnessed all over the UK, but it is especially important in relation to water safety.

The Legionella Control Association has published some information on The Impact of Lockdowns on Legionella Positivity Rates in the UK.

They said “As an industry, we know that Legionella bacteria thrive in man-made water systems and can proliferate when we allow these man-made systems to become warm and stagnate. This has been evidenced by the national lockdowns that occurred as part of the COVID-19 response by the UK government.

Back in February 2021, we wrote about the Legionella threat in relation to lockdown, and we were featured in the Yorkshire Evening Post and The Independent.
