On November 12, on the occasion of the #WorldPneumoniaDay, we offered you some facts to keep in mind about this disease that affects the airways.

According to data from the National Institute of Statistics, pneumonia causes between 9,000 and 10,000 deaths each year, and is always more frequent in men over 65 years of age than in women. This disease usually appears in winter and the major risk factor is smoking.

In order to contribute to the reduction of this condition, we share on our blog some aspects to keep in mind reflected by the Spanish Society of Pulmonology and Thoracic Surgery:

– The main way to prevent pneumonia is vaccination against flu and pneumococcus.

– Other preventive measures include washing your hands frequently, properly disposing of handkerchiefs and covering your mouth and nose when sneezing or coughing.

– They also help prevent the disease not to smoke, to maintain orodental hygiene and, in general, a healthy diet and physical activity.
