No mention of it being "caused" by cold temperatures?[edit]

It's widely believed that pneumonia is caused or exacerbated by cold, and especially wet, weather or low ambient temperatures. Whether true or not, this ought to be mentioned in the article.

the global health community has declared 12 November as World Pneumonia Day[edit]

No community of this type has a sufficient coherence and organisation that is sensible to claim that it has declared anything. Please correctly state who has made this declaration and avoid this type of language in the future.
