Why do you get pneumonia? On Health in newsstand
THE ingredients are all there: waves of cold, the peak of flu , an increase of smog extended the reopening of schools. And, why not, also the fact that during the christmas holidays we spent more time indoors, and crowded, and we kissed and hugged more. A godsend for bacteria and viruses that could spread with ease. The result is an increase in the number of cases of pneumonia, as evidenced by the first aid crowded in major cities. is On average in Italy there are 2 cases for every 1000 inhabitants, but the first estimates of the these days speak of an incidence double, 4 for every 1000 italians, especially in some areas . "This is not an epidemic – stresses, Francesco Blasi, the director of the Department of internal Medicine and of the operative Unit of Pneumology, Policlinico di Milano – in this period is physiological to expect a growth of infections, which goes hand in hand with the spread of the flu: the influenza a virus, in fact, if often can turn into infections for a deep, open up, however the road to the bacteria that cause pneumonia".

Nothing to see, then, with the alert taken in China, where a real epidemic of pneumonia has spread to the Wuhan – over 40 confirmed cases in the city, two deaths and two patients found to be positive in Thailand and Japan – a work of a coronavirus, was never identified before. In Italy, encouraged by the experts, and the pneumonias that we see increase are caused in large part by an old acquaintance of pulmonologists, Streptococcus pneumoniae, a bacterium that circulates throughout the year but in the colder months it becomes particularly insidious. "This year, then, one of the influenza viruses, A(H3N2), has a characteristic disagreeable: it facilitates the penetration of bacteria in the lower airway," explains Fabrizio Pregliasco, virologist, medical director of the IRCCS Galeazzi Orthopaedic Institute of Milan.

pneumonia is an inflammation of the deep part of the respiratory system and particularly affects the alveoli, the terminal part of the respiratory tree, which are filled with mucus, thus preventing the exchange of gases between the air we breathe in and the blood. That's why it can also become a very serious illness and lead to death.

But on the weekly on newsstands tomorrow, Tuesday, January 21, we will address other topics. We will also talk about immunotherapy and how to make sleep the children to avoid the risk of cot death.
