Lack of awareness complicates the disease.
The lungs in the human body perform their functions all the time from the first breath to the last breath of life. A person breathes 18 to 25 times per minute and this process takes place in the respiratory tract, ear, upper respiratory tract, trachea, bronchi and When we breathe through the nose, the air travels through the throat to the inner part of the lungs where the small air sacs are located.
Here, after a certain process, clean oxygen is spread throughout the body and harmful carbon dioxide is expelled. It is difficult to estimate how many times a day the lungs have to deal with harmful substances, they skillfully remove them from the body.
What is pneumonia?
Pneumonia is an infection of the lungs, where fluid or pus accumulates, which prevents air from passing through. It is difficult to breathe. These include discoloration, redness, and browning. If the pneumonia attack is mild, it can be cured in a week or two.

Coughing, cold, flu and sore throat as well as cold, difficulty breathing, rib walking, lethargy, restlessness, not drinking baby’s milk and blue face or hands are some of the symptoms ignoring them. Taking painkillers alone is not the answer. Remember that corona and pneumonia can be fatal if they strike at the same time.
