Only now I realize: it was in the nick of time
Evergem “Read that patients have died: that do you think.” Kay Dobbelaer (24) from Belzele is still under the impression. He was one of the first patients with legionella and realizes, two weeks after his diagnosis, that he is lucky has had. Meanwhile, it seems the outbreak is still not under control.

Two weeks ago, on Friday, noted Kay that he himself was not. “In my work, I felt bad. Tired, especially. I thought the flu was, or something in that nature. After my working day I am in bed.” And that was Kay, two days long. “It was my girlfriend that made me finally convinced to go to the er. They felt that something not right was - I'm rather someone who is still a day longer to wait.”

41 degrees fever

But Kay arrived not a moment too soon in the hospital. 41 degree fever and very weak. Kay could hardly on his legs, was confused and hit either. Since he is one of the first patients with the legionella contamination, the diagnosis is not immediately apparent. “It was first thought to be a pneumonia," said Kay. “To suddenly ‘legionella’ it was said. I had never heard of it, of course.” After an antibiotic course of five days, Kay dismissed.
