MMWR: Announcement: World Pneumonia Day — November 12, 2017

Thursday, November 9, 2017   (0 Comments)

World Pneumonia Day, observed on November 12 each year, aims to highlight the huge toll pneumonia takes on children and adults worldwide. In 2015, an estimated 2.7 million persons died from respiratory infections, including 700,000–920,000 children aged <5 years (1,2). Streptococcus pneumoniae and Haemophilus influenzae type b bacteria cause most of these deaths; however, viruses, including influenza and respiratory syncytial virus, also have a considerable impact (1).
