Gardeners anxious over Legionnaires' outbreak

Published: 3:15PM Thursday November 29, 2012 Source: ONE News

Gardeners are keen to discover the source of an outbreak of Legionnaires' disease which could be transferred through potting mix.

The latest outbreak has claimed a life in Canterbury this month and figures show an increase in cases nationwide.

There were 14 cases of the disease around the country in October, double the number from the same time last year, while in Canterbury alone this month there have been 12 cases including the fatality.

"We are looking into whether or not there's a particular type of potting mix associated with this," Canterbury Medical Officer of Health, Alistair Humphrey said.

Peter Worsp from the Nursery and Garden Industry Association is keen to find out more detail about the outbreak.

"It would be great to find out how it's transferred, where it comes from, but at the moment it's just one of the things that do occur," he told ONE News.

People are advised to always wear gloves and a face mask when handling soil-type products, mulches, compost or potting mix.

Legionnaires' sufferer Dave Duthie told ONE News he wishes he had followed the warnings.

"I think I'd heard something about compost but thought really it was something that happened to other people," he said.

"There's a little warning label on the bag that says wear a mask, and this is one of those ones it's probably worth taking note of."

Humphrey said Legionnaires' is avoidable if people follow the precautions.

"It's a preventable disease so we want to make sure that we keep our facilities available for people who really need it," he said.

"It costs up to $4000 a day to have somebody in intensive care and people who get this disease can often be in for up to 20 days, that's a very expensive illness."

Legionnaires' is a form of pneumonia that can be life-threatening for people with weakened immune systems.

An outbreak earlier this year in Auckland contributed to two deaths, and infected 17 people.
