Pneumonia What is pneumonia? Description: Pneumonia is a lung infection. It can be caused by different types of microorganisms, not excluding: bacteria (most common), parasite, viruses, and fungi. Symptoms:
shortness of breath,
severe bad breath,
muscle pain,
chest pain, especially when breathing deeply
blue lips and nail beds
dry cough, (similar to whooping cough)
moderate fever, up to about 39°C (102°F)
long, drawn out cough Contagious Period: About two weeks, depending on the type of pneumonia. But people are MOST contagious at their worst. So, once it peaks people it is more likely the person can give it to others. Methods of transmission:
Similar to the common cold or the flu. It can be transmitted by touching of hands, coughing, sneezing, moisture or water from the mouth or nose and sharing utensils. It can cause other children, teachers, parents and volunteers to get sick. It can also compromise those in the centre who have compromised immune systems and create an outbreak that would close down the entire centre.
