Rpmolecule...i think mag ingat ka...

The viruses and bacteria that cause pneumonia are contagious and are usually found in fluid from the mouth or nose of an infected person. Pneumonia can spread by coughs and sneezes, by sharing drinking glasses and eating utensils with an infected person, and contact with used tissues or handkerchiefs.

Handwashing is important when around a person with pneumonia, since the bacteria and viruses can also be spread to your hands and then to your mouth..


i hope this helps .... some cases are linked towards HIV and immune compromised individuals.... mas maganda pacheck up ka..

i must agree.....

Although most cases of pneumonia are caused by a viral or bacterial infection, the disease can also be caused anything that obstructs the bronchial tubes. Tumors, peanuts, hard candies, or small toys in the bronchial tubes can trap bacteria, viruses, or fungi, resulting in pneumonia.
