It was only at the beginning of the year travellers were warned about a Legionnaires disease and now it has risen again with the Australian Government issuing a ‘Please be careful’ advice to all travellers to Bali. In the article that appeared in the West Australian newspaper on the weekend, several returning travellers to Australia have been hospitalised.
Legionnaires is a deadly disease and the warning should not be taken lightly by any tourist. Of course, and as always, the Bali Health Department is right on the ball with this matter. The disease is commonly contracted, or so thought, by unclean air-conditioning. Cooling towers in large buildings are a breeding ground. Read the article and take heed of the notice.
