How Do You Get Pneumonia?
Pneumonia is a bacterial, fungal, or viral infection that causes the lungs’ air sacs to become inflamed. There are numerous ways to get pneumonia, but the illness most commonly spreads through airborne droplets that are expelled when an infected person sneezes, coughs, or talks.
Once you develop pneumonia, you may experience symptoms such as chills, chest pain, a headache, a sore throat, and loss of appetite. If you have walking pneumonia (a milder version of the illness), you may also develop a mild fever, a dry cough, and labored breathing. Standard pneumonia commonly produces a fever over 101° F, a wet cough, shortness of breath, and fatigue.
