Detailed Answer:

Thanks for the query

Indoor decorative water fountain most commonly leads to the following infections. Especially if it is stagnant

1. E. Coli
2. Amoebiasis
3. Cryptosporodosis
4. Pseudomonas
5. Typhoid

Renal transplant recipients should be careful around stagnant waters as they are more prone for infections due to the immunosupressive drugs
