How can you prevent the spread of pneumonia?

They can spread in a number of ways, including coughs or sneezes that aren't covered, sharing cups or eating utensils, touching a tissue or other item after someone with bacterial or viral pneumonia has used it, and not washing your hands regularly. Here are some steps that can help reduce your exposure to the bacteria or viruses that can cause pneumonia. #WorldPneumoniaDay
