What were the symptoms associated with Legionnaires' disease in you, a friend, or relative?

Comment from: Sabae, 55-64 Female (Caregiver) Published: April 08

My friend has been taking levofloxacin for five days for legionella pneumonia treatment but still has a fever that is up and down. I don't know when we will see improvement.
