India braces for rise in pneumonia cases

About 300,000 Indian children die every year from the disease as only a fraction of them receive specialised treatment.

    Winter is approaching in India and that usually means an increase in the number of pneumonia cases.

    Pneumonia is the number one killer of Indian children under the age of five. About 300,000 children die every year from the disease.
