I had pneumonia when I was 4 years old. The children in the post don't have the healthcare.

My son is just coming off it. It's hai-en in Japanese. He had a persistent cough, we had him tested, and that's what they found. It wasn't the micoplasma type, otherwise I think he might have had to stay off school longer than he did.

It is tragic that children are still dying from it across the world.
