Viral Pneumonia (cont.)

Viral Pneumonia Prevention
Germs are spread both by aerosolized droplets that you breathe in (such as from a sneeze) and through body fluids left on surfaces like countertops and door handles. If you avoid people who are coughing or sneezing, and wash your hands frequently, you can reduce your chances of catching a virus.
Fluids and rest during bouts of the common cold can help prevent progression to pneumonia.
