Pneumonia claims the life of a child every 20 seconds.

While 98 percent of pneumonia-induced deaths occur in developing countries, it’s still important to recognize how its symptoms show up in children.

Unlike adults, children who have pneumonia may not experience a nagging cough or fever and may have signs of infection that are much more subtle.

They also are a greater risk of contracting the disease because their immune system is not fully developed.

Overall, pneumonia symptoms vary according to age, but there are a number of clues that can help you recognize when your child has more than a bad cold.
