Infographic: World Pneumonia Day

November 12 is the annual World Pneumonia Day.

Pneumonia is a respiratory disease affecting the lungs where a bacterial infection causes the small air sacs in the lungs (alveoli) to fill with pus and fluid, causing difficulty breathing due to limited oxygen intake.

Pneumonia can be life-threatening if left untreated, especially for high-risk people such as children, the elderly and individuals with comorbid illnesses.

Prevent Pneumonia by:

-Balanced diet
-A clean and safe environment
